Katherine (Kitty) Dooley, a member of the Royal Rooters of the Boston Red Sox, will throw out the first ball on Sunday in the Red Sox last game of the season. Aunt Kitty, who is the great aunt of my son-in-law Bill, is in her nineties and is among the most famous Red Sox fans along with her sister, Libby, who is deceased.
The Royal Rooters is the original fan club of the Red Sox going back one hundred years.
Libby is featured in the new DVD of "Rooters: The Birth of Red Sox Nation" to be released in early October.
Go Red Sox! Go Aunt Kitty!
