August 19, 2007



She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed. :(


You and your Mother are in my prayers. Seriously.
I'd also like to say, as much as baseball is irrelevant right now... even though I'm a Yankee fan, I'm glad your Mother got to see your Sox win it all as well. The passion you and your fam have for that team, and the fact she got to see how happy you all were.. I am sure brought her joy.


Oh Derek, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She sounded like an amazing woman. Please know you and your family will continue to be in my thoughts.


Derek: I'm sorry to hear about your mom, you and your family are in my prayers.


Derek - I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I only heard stories from Dan, but what I heard made me believe that she was one wonderful woman. May the memory of her life stay with you always.

Jen (O.)


I'm deeply sorry for your loss.


Only on the baseball field are we rivals. Once we step out of the stadium and take off our jerseys, we end facing the same inconsistencies of life.
Truly sorry for your loss. From what I've read here on the blog, she was truly a great woman.
-thoughts and prayers from a Yankee fan.


You and your family remain in my thoughts and prayers. In times like these family means everything, and you truly have one of the greatest families I have known. I am happy that you will forever hold a piece of your mom in your memories both on and off the field.


Man, I am so sorry.
I lost my mom to cancer in 1978 right before my 15th birthday. I know there is nothing like it. She's going to be with you as your angel forever. You'll feel her presence in everything you do. Take care man,

Derek Hixon

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
