Nomar Garciaparra appears at food industry trade show

April 29, 2011

Former Red Sox star, Nomar Garciaparra, spent his Wednesday morning at a trade show here in Boston.  He spoke to select food industry executives at breakfast about his love for Boston and the time he spent here, and making the transition from baseball player to media personality.  Nomar then appeared on the trade show floor greeting attendees, signing autographs and posing for photos.  He always enjoys coming back to Boston and interacting with the fans who supported him for so many years.


Dennis Eckersley creates the Eck App for fans

April 25, 2011

Hall-of-Famer Dennis Eckersley is not only one of baseball’s all-time great pitchers, he’s one of the game’s all-time great personalities.

With the new “Eck App,” you can learn to look like Eck, talk like Eck and think like Eck. The only thing it can’t do is teach you to throw like Eck!


  • Fans can photograph anybody’s face, and then add Eck’s signature moss (that’s hair in Eckspeak) and moustache. Top the portrait off with a customized Eck ballcap!
  • Play Eck Trivia and hear the man himself talk a little trash when you get one wrong, or hear him get fired up when you get one right!
  • Become fluent in “Eckspeak” by looking up Eck’s catch phrases with the built-in Eck’ipedia!

It’s all Eck, all the time, in the palm of your hand.

Available now on the iTunes App Store >

The application was created by Saltwater Creative + Technology and Jimmy Dunn Creative in collaboration with Dennis Eckersley, and developed and published by Zco Corporation.   It is available for iPods, iPhones and iPads.   See the Eck App’s website for more information.
