Trot Nixon at the plate

This was my dream when I first came to this organization in '93. When I first got here, people were talking about how long it had been since the Red Sox won, and right then, I said I wanted to be here when we did win it.

2004 Season Highlights

•  Trot opened the season on the disabled list with a slight disk herniation in his back and a strained left quadriceps suffered during rehab. He finally was able to join the lineup on June 16 in Colorado, and he homered in his second at-bat of his first game back.

•  After hitting .273 with 3 home runs and 13 RBI in 29 games, he went back on the D.L. when the quad was bothering him again.

•  Nixon returned for 19 games in September, starting in 12. He hit .400 over that span, with 8 multi-hit games, plus 5 doubles, 3 homers, and 10 RBI.

•  Trot hit a pinch-hit home run against the Devil Rays on September 14. Overall, he went 3-for-11 with 5 RBI as a pinch-hitter in 2004.

2004 Postseason Highlights

•  Nixon played in two games in the Division Series, going 1-for-5 with an RBI in Game 2, and 1-for-3 with an RBI in Game 3.

•  He homered off Kevin Brown in Game 3 of the ALCS, sparking a four-run inning that actually gave the Sox a brief 4-3 lead in the game they would go on to lose 19-8. Trot had a double in the ninth inning, too, not giving up despite the lopsided score.

•  Trot had an RBI single in Game 3 of the World Series, giving the Sox a 2-0 lead. In Game 4, he had three doubles. His third-inning double was hit on a 3-0 count with the bases loaded, and almost left the park. It hit off the outfield fence and scored two runs, giving the Sox some breathing room with a 3-0 lead in the game.
