In 1903, a select few got to wear the pin "Nuf Ced" and cheer the Boston team to their first even World Series victory.
Mike "Nuf Ced" McGreevy was a Red Sox fan even before they were the Red Sox. He owned the 3rd Base Saloon near the the new Huntington Avenue ballpark, home to the Boston Americans, and he led his Royal Rooters at every game, placed ads on the scorecards and programs that read: “McGreevy on the Avenue … Nuf Ced,” and even bought ad space on the left-field wall: “What’s the last stop before home? Third Base – Nuf Ced."
The nickname came from the terse statement he’d make when a customer got a little over-enthusiastic or voiced an opinion against the local team. McGreevy would decree ‘Nuf Ced,’ and his edict would be enforced by the big strong bouncers he hired. McGreevy and his Royal Rooters attended every game of the 1903 World Series against Pittsburgh and were credited as living good-luck charms who could invariably root their beloved Boston teams to victory.
