This afternoon at Fenway Park, in the shadow of many adorning plaques and Larry Lucchinos ego, John Farrell was introduced as the 46th manager of the Boston Red Sox.
I was at Fenway last night, and by looking at the crowd you never would have guessed that they were cheering for a team thats four games under .500.
Johnny Pesky was laid to rest today in Swampscott, MA.
Friends, family, and numerous members of the Red Sox were on hand for the private ceremony.
Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz have been around Johnny Pesky for years, and grew close to the Red Sox legendary player, manager, coach, and everything else.
