HBO focuses on Johnson family tonight

Set your DVR to watch “Real Sports” on HBO at 10 p.m. (ET) tonight.

There’s a segment on Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson and his daughter Bridget, who lost her left leg in an accident last summer.

I had a chance to see the report by Frank Deford over the weekend and it’s heartwarming to see how the Red Sox — and the Yankees — responded to help RJ and his family.

In case you missed it last winter, Amalie Benjamin wrote a wonderful story about the Johnson family.
