On This Day: September 21st

September 21, 2006

I broke the franchise record for most homers in a season with 51, finished with 54. Also, I broke my own single season HR record as a designated hitter (44).

Obviously this meant so much to me. Back in 2006 to be considered in the same sentence as Jimmie Foxx, a Red Sox legend, was crazy, but breaking that record was even crazier.  51 homers that’s a lot, I never did it again (haha) but that’s what makes it even more special for me.  The record still stands today but I’m sure one of these days, one of those young guys coming up through the system will break it.  They’re all so good.
