Johnny Pesky Is Forever Boston

Johnny Pesky will forever be “Mr. Red Sox.” Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino released the following statement: “All of Red Sox Nation mourns the loss of ‘Mr. Red Sox,’ Johnny Pesky.  He loved the game and he loved the fans – and we loved him.  His dedication to the sport and his passion to improve the game through the mentorship of young players will be sorely missed. Our hearts go out to the Red Sox organization and all of Johnny’s family and many friends.” Much of the media is celebrating his life today, and I only felt it appropriate we do the same. Cheers, Mr. Red Sox, Boston’s Downtown Crossing will never be the same without you.
