|Long Description||The 1950s Red Sox were teeming with huge stories. You might know about Ted Williams, of course, but con- sider his teammates: Harry Agganis, a legendary local athlete whose tragic death is remembered by millions in the region; or Jimmy Piersall, whose illness and breakdown led to a book and two movies; or Jackie Jensen, a famous collegiate football star who forged a great career with the Red Sox. The Red Sox are famous for failing to integrate until 1959, the last team to do so. Depicted here are the people mostly blamed for this oversight (Tom Yawkey, Joe Cronin, and Mike Higgins), as well as the man who finally broke the color line (Pumpsie Green). Red Sox Baseball in the Days of Ike and Elvis is part of an ongoing series of books of baseball biographies created by members of SABR’s Baseball Biography Project. Most of these books have focused on great or iconic team- seasons; this book attempts to give a look at an entire decade. The 1950s weren’t a decade in which the Boston Red Sox excelled. There were no pennants or world championships. In fact, team performance progressively declined as the decade wore on. The Red Sox were nonetheless populated by a number of fascinating characters whose stories we believe to be worth telling and worth reading. This book represents the collaborative work of 34 members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), an all-volunteer effort.

You may have noticed that we were off line for a while here and there over the past couple days.
We had planned one short outage and posted information about it in advance. But after installing the new RAID system we still had to move all of the data off of the old system over to the new system.
Each time we got data off of one of the hard drives, we had to shut down the system for a short time to physically remove the old drive. We had to do this several times because we had several old drives on the old RAID system and they could only be moved one at a time.
We tried to keep the down time to a minimum but it still took a little longer than expected after the last drive was removed and swapped out. There were a couple unexpted issues relating to that last hard drive.
Fortunately, now with the new RAID in place, we can HOT SWAP drives. This means that when we change out the hard drives we don't have to turn the power off.
We still have a couple internal hard drives that do require a power off if we need to spaw them but it is unlikely we will need to do that unless one dies. The old drives didn't die, we just needed to expand the drive space with larger hard drives so we went to the hot swap system to plan for the future.
