Red Sox to celebrate life of Johnny Pesky

|

The Boston Red Sox will present a “Celebration of Life” tribute to Johnny Pesky after their Sunday afternoon game on September 23.  Ceremonies to honor the beloved icon, who passed away August 13 at age 93, are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.  They are open to fans who attend that day’s game and to the general public.  There is no charge. 

Fans with tickets to the game may stay at the ballpark after the game (or depart and return), and fans without tickets are welcome shortly after the completion of the game, which begins at 1:35 p.m. against the Baltimore Orioles.  While the formal portion of the ceremony is set to take place between 6-7 p.m., fans are welcome to stay until the park closes at 9 p.m. Both current and former Red Sox players will be in attendance.

In addition to hearing stories about Pesky’s 70-year career, fans will have the opportunity to walk on the warning track and see displays that illustrate his life as a player, coach, manager, broadcaster, ambassador, patriot, husband, father, and friend.  Fans will also have the opportunity to write personal messages that will be given to his family and become part of the Nation’s Archives at Fenway Park.
