Blue Sky Client Tim Wakefield Pitches Gem in Interleague Win

May 24, 2011

Tim Wakefield’s stellar performance on Sunday night earned the Red Sox a win over the Cubs.  For the past 19 years Wakefield has carried out the knuckle ball tradition, a pitch that was developed over a century ago. The Red Sox’ veteran knuckle-baller was lights out against the Cubs, going 6 1/3 innings and throwing 55 out of 77 pitches for strikes. While walking off the mound, Wakefield gave a tip of his cap to Red Sox fans as he received a roaring ovation.

Wakefield gets his next start Friday May 27 against the Detroit Tigers.

Rookie Tyler Seguin leads Cam Neely’s Bruins to a Win over the Lightning

May 18, 2011

The Bruin’s came back from a tough Game 1 loss against the Lightning with a vengeance on Tuesday night. Tyler Seguin became only the second rookie in NHL history to benchmark three goals and six points in his first two career playoff games. Seguin’s outstanding performance in Game 2 sparked a five goal second period and lifted the Bruin’s to a 6-5 victory.

Good luck to Blue Sky’s client, Cam Neely, and the Boston Bruins as they travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning in Game 3!

Esposito: Retired Bruin Great has New Role with Lightning

May 18, 2011

Phil Esposito, Hall of Famer and one of the greatest players of all time, was recently named Vice President of Corporate Relations for the Tampa Bay Lightning  and also acts as a their home radio analyst.   Phil was one of the main proponents of the addition of a Tampa based expansion team in the early 90’s and was GM for the franchise’s first seven seasons.  For that reason he will always be deeply rooted into the Tampa Bay hockey tradition as he has been in Boston.

Phil played for the Boston Bruins from 1967-76.    He was a main contributor to the Bruin’s 1969-70 and 1971-72 Stanley Cup winning teams.  Esposito scored 76 goals and tallied 142 points over the course of the 1970-71 season.  These were two unbelievable single season records that were not broken until 1981 by the rising Edmonton Oilers’ star, Wayne Gretzky.
