Any Boston Red Sox fan over the age of 40, know that it hasn’t always been like this. There was way more heartache then celebration. If any Red Sox fan know that’s first hand it’s 99-year-old Ginny Tardiff of Lisbon.Ginny was just 4 years old when the Red Sox won their last World Series in Boston in 1918.

Now, 95-years later, she hopes to see the team win it again in Boston.

Ginny has followed the Red Sox for decades and was finally rewarded when the Red Sox broke the 86-year jinx with a World Series in in 2004 against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Ginny grew up in Lisbon Falls and was married and raised seven children on a farm in Bowdoin, and served as postmaster, operating the post office from her porch.

Over the years, some of Ginny’s favorite Red Sox players have been Roger Clemens and Nomar Garciaparra.

Ginny says its tough for her to stay awake for the games. However, she watched all of game 5 of the World Series. Now she hopes her team will prove worthy of her faith and win the World Series at home.
