Finally some good news from Fenway Park. The Sox have retired the number of fan favorite J.D. Drew.
Drew hit a robust .264 during his five years in Boston, averaging 16 home runs and 57 RBIs per season. He also was a friend to many a backup outfielder by giving them bountiful chances to play.
Drew did not attend the ceremony on Van Ness St., having left before reporters arrived.
“Aw, heck, I’m honored,” he said in a team statement.
Thanks to loyal reader Dan from Arlington who passed along this photo and allowed us to have a little fun. And get that “2” fixed before Pudge Fisk sees it.
