Dodgers’ Rich Hill uniquely positioned to appreciate World Series vs. Red Sox

Both took him to Boston, Mass.“I went to many games in Fenway (Park), and I remember going, being on my dad’s shoulders, going to many games,” Hill said as the Dodgers celebrated their National League Championship Series victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. “When I was a little kid, I can vividly remember going up the ramp and seeing the best piece of grass in the city.“It’s going to be a lot of fun.”The oldest player on the Dodgers’ 25-man roster was not around for the first World Series between the Dodgers and Red Sox franchises. That was in 1916. Hill, 38, is uniquely positioned to appreciate this historic matchup, however.center_img Hill’s hometown of Milton, Mass., is about 15 minutes away from the American League’s oldest ballpark. He graduated from Milton High School in 1999. He counts Dwight Evans, Wade Boggs, Carlos Quintana, Mo Vaughn and Nomar Garciaparra among the players he grew up watching.After spending parts of nine seasons playing for the Cubs, Orioles and Cardinals organizations, Hill signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox in June 2009. At 30 years old, Hill began the first of his three stints with the team he grew up cheering; each marked an important turning point in his career.The first marked Hill’s initial foray into full-time relief pitching. It went well when he was healthy. He allowed four runs in 40 games, all out of the Boston bullpen, from 2010-12. In a theme that would come to define his career, Hill wasn’t always healthy.He lowered his arm slot. He tore his left ulnar collateral ligament and underwent Tommy John surgery. Later, Hill strained a flexor tendon in the same elbow. He was outrighted to the minors once and non-tendered twice. By the end of the 2012 season, Hill left his hometown needing to re-establish his career. It would not happen for another three years after stints with six teams.One was the independent Long Island Ducks. One was the Red Sox again, in 2014, a brief stint marred by the tragic death of his infant son in spring training. Finally, in August of 2015, Hill got the fresh start he needed when the Red Sox re-signed him to a minor league deal. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I knew I was healthy,” said Hill, who is expected to start Game 4 of the World Series. “I knew at the time that I was going to have an opportunity. I didn’t know if I was going to get called up that year. Steven Wright got hit in the head during batting practice in order for me to get called up.”Former major leaguer Brian Bannister, Boston’s in-house pitching guru, urged Hill to rely on a curveball that he could spin different ways to different batters in different situations. It worked. Hill ditched his sidearm delivery. He flourished as a starter. In short order, Hill became a coveted free agent at a time when most baseball careers fade quietly.Now, Hill figures to start once or twice against the Red Sox in the World Series.“Being a Red Sock and now with the Dodgers, all the historic background with the Dodgers is huge,” Hill said. “I do appreciate it. I love the history of the game. I love this opportunity that we’re going to take on.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
