Exorcising the “Curse of the Bambino” to Let the Red Sox Win the World Series

9/6/04

Recalling another story from his career linked to baseball, Amb. Quinn describes how he arranged for Dr. Norman Borlaug to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park on June 9, 2004. As Amb. Quinn describes it, it was on that night that Dr. Borlaug’s appearance would remove the legendary curse of the Bambino, which had kept the Red Sox from ever winning a World Series from 1918 until 2004.
