Former Red Sox player Kevin Youkilis, who will return to Fenway Park on Monday with the Chicago White Sox, addressed Red Sox Nation via a letter submitted to ESPNBoston.

He thanks the team for the opportunities he was given and those who supported him, and singles out the Red Sox ownership team, former manager Terry Francona, his family, and supporters of his charity before addressing Red Sox fans as follows:

And, last but no means least, to all the Red Sox Nation, the home of the most dedicated and knowledgeable fans in baseball, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. That final game at Fenway was the most emotional day of my life on the baseball field. It could not have been scripted any better. And to all those kids out there in Red Sox Nation, I can give you my Dad’s advice. “Life is like a throw to first base, always aim high.”

I love you all, and thanks,

Kevin Youkilis
