A Prized Trophy Under the Golden Dome

As New Englanders, we enjoy our sports teams in good times and in bad; sometimes a season ends with the ultimate prize. Today, I had the pleasure of seeing the result of the Boston Red Sox' hard work - the Commissioner's Trophy. My friend and former Senate colleague Bob Travaglini, he served the Senate as President from 2003 through 2007, facilitated the visit of the trophy to the Senate Reading Room.

Balfour Jewelers of Attleboro was commissioned to design the first Commissioners Trophy in 1967. There are 30 golden flags above a silver baseball and a new one is made and presented each season. Looking forward to more well-earned victories.
