Michael T. "Nuf Ced" McGreevy was the leader of the most vocal fans of the Boston Americans (now the Boston Red Sox), today known as the "Royal Rooters". McGreevey owned the Third Base Saloon, which got its name because, like third base, it was the last stop before home. His saloon was Boston's original sports bar - it was decorated in a baseball theme, with pictures of the players, and a scoreboard on the outside wall. His nickname "Nuf Ced" was given to him because that was what he usually shouted to end barroom disputes, usually about the Boston Americans and the Boston Braves.
McGreevy amassed a rich collection of photographs, clippings, and other baseball memorabilia. When Prohibition forced McGreevy to close Third Base, he donated his collection to the Boston Public Library.
In 2008, Dropkick Murphys bassist Ken Casey re-opened Third Base, although it is no longer known as such. Now the tavern is known as McGreevey's and can be converted to open-air. There is also a sign on the front of the bar that says "1200 Steps to Fenway Park." It is on Boylston Street and is right across the street from the Hynes Convention Center.
