Then there’s the story of Patrick White, a 13-year-old ballplayer from Quincy who’s dealing with his second bout with cancer. He got to meet some of the Sox through the Jimmy Fund and Trot Nixon still calls now and then. Sox CEO Larry Lucchino once said to Pat’s family, “If there’s ever anything we can do . . . “
You know the drill. A lot of people say that just to make themselves feel better, but they don’t really mean it.
Patrick White was on the Home Depot float yesterday, sitting with his mom, dad, and two sisters, waving to the crowd, doing what all other New Englanders were doing.
He was having the time of his life.
Thanks to the Red Sox.
