|Boston, MA – Jan. 20, 2005 – Boston Red Sox’s fans have waited over 86 years for a World Series victory and now Doug Mientkiewicz holds a piece of that historic win in the palm of his hand. |
“Sportsbook.com is determined to purchase the ball and toss it back to the Boston community which stood by its team for almost nine decades,” said Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. “We have a very loyal customer base in Boston who have been great to us over the years,” Czajkowski added. “This is an opportunity for us to give something back.”
Mientkiewicz was quoted in various media as saying the ball was his retirement fund and that it would be cool “if we have kids some day to have it stay in our family for a long time. But I can be bought. I'm thinking, there's four years at Florida State for one of my kids.”
“If four years at FSU is all it takes to bring a piece of history home to millions of devoted Boston Red Sox fans, then Sportsbook.com is more than willing to foot the bill,” Czajkowski added.
Sportsbook.com has informed the Boston Red Sox and a representative of Doug Mientkiewicz of its offer.
