A few words on Scott Sanderson

Upon hearing of the death of Scott Sanderson, I thought of this photo I took in June 1991 at Fenway Park. He went six innings, allowing one run to get the win (5-1, Yankees). About a week later, he was named to his only All-Star team. It was my first game at Fenway. The seats (second row here behind the bullpen) were great, Ellis Burks hit the only home run, and I remember thinking it had to be pretty rare to see Don Mattingly and Wade Boggs strike out in the same game. RIP, Scott.
