BLOHARDS on Twitter

Uggh.....Let's throw strikes, boys! https://t.co/XEHYKvHPu1

Sox have now lost eight of their first ten games. Glass half-full take on things -- it's akin to losing the opener in football. Yankees no great shakes either, but at least they've limited the damage to 4-4. https://t.co/15yZCsjvN5

Our History

In the bar car of a Connecticut-bound New Haven Railroad train following a Yankee-Red Sox confrontation, Jim Powers breaks into song: “Who’s better than his brother Joe? Dominic DiMaggio…”, thereby attracting the attention of like-minded Sox fan Henry Berry. The two become friends and fellow pillars of the BLOHARDs. Red Sox miraculously win the pennant.

The BLOHARDS (Benevolent Loyal Order of Honorable Ancient Redsox Diehard Sufferers) are a New York City based group which supports the Boston Red Sox baseball team. The organization was formed in 1964 following a chance meeting on a New Haven Rail Road bar car between Henry Berry and Jim Powers, both native New Englanders living in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Berry died in 1996 and Powers in 2005, but the organization carries on. At present its activities include twice-yearly lunches at Manhattan’s Yale Club when the Red Sox come to town to play the Yankees, a bus trip to Fenway park for each season’s home opener, and occasional “viewing parties” of away games at local watering holes.

Thursday May 10 marked the 55th consecutive (more or less) vernal congregation of BLOHARDS

“The Mets, who started the season by going 11-1, are almost back to .500. Which is about how many people showed up to watch them play the Braves the other night.”
