Displayed is the game worn Red Sox jacket of Trot Nixon, an outfielder who played in the Major Leagues for 12 years, ten of them with the Red Sox. Nixon was a part of the 2004 Boston team that ended the so-called "Curse of the Bambino," the Red Sox drought of World Championships from 1918-2004, since Babe Ruth was traded in 1920. In that 2004 World Series, Nixon hit a two-out two run double in the top to the third inning to give the Red Sox a 3-0 lead in their World Series clinching game. Nixon's best season was in 2003, when he hit .306 with 28 home runs. Nixon's hustling play was one of the inspirations for the "Boston Dirt Dogs" of this era. The offered jacket was one that Nixon would wear in between innings of games, especially on cold nights. The jacket has number "7," Nixon's uniform number, handwritten in the neck tag. The jacket is tagged as a size "XL." The blue on the jacket is gradually coming off, leaving the jacket with a somewhat sticky feel in some places, almost like that of rosin. The jacket was obtained from a former Red Sox employee. The jacket has a greater connection to the fabled year when Boston finally broke the "Curse."
