The Red Sox Song was written about the Boston Red Sox right after the 1975 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. It was written, copyrighted and published (BMI) in 1976 by Wayne Ulaky, a founding member of the rock band The Beacon Street Union.
Wayne Ulaky produced the recording with studio musicians under the fictitious name of Pine Tree John and the Designated Hitters. The lead vocal was performed by John Lincoln Wright, also a former member of the Beacon Street Union.
The recording was pressed into 45 rpm records and released as a single. It was played occasionally on many radio stations around New England, and appeared in many juke boxes in night clubs at the time. Boston TV channel 38 (WSBK) was broadcasting the Red Sox home games that year, and used The Red Sox Song (A Day In Fenway Park) as a theme song for their promotional video about upcoming game broadcasts. It was also played occasionally at Fenway Park by organist John Kiley.
