NESN Vault: Red Sox, Ringling Brothers Circus Heads to 1955 Spring Training in Sarasota


Starting in 1933, the Red Sox called Sarasota, Fla., home for spring training. In 1955, the Sox were joined not only by Stan Musial and the St. Louis Cardinals on the Gulf Coast, but also by Ringling Brothers Circus, which was holding a spring training of its own.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
