In Memoriam

George Mitrovich

The Great Fenway Park Writers Series


A message from Dick Flavin:

As many of you know, George Mitrovich, the founder and keeper of the flame of The Great Fenway Park Writers Series, passed away on July 24 in his native San Diego, California. George had many dear friends in the Boston area and was a much loved member of the Red Sox family who will be greatly missed. A memorial service will be held in San Diego in August when the Red Sox are scheduled to play there. George was a unique personality whose enthusiasm for baseball, the Red Sox and books was contagious. The Writers Series is the only literary series sponsored by a baseball team, a fact of which the Red Sox are proud and for which they are greatly indebted to George. Please remember our great friend in your thoughts and prayers.
