Carl Crawford Wears Liverpool Tie to Red Sox News Conference


Carl Crawford Wears Liverpool Tie to Red Sox News Conference New Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford is already showing how much of a company man he can be.

According to Hall of Famer and NESN correspondent Peter Gammons, the new Red Sox signing couldn’t find the right color tie for his introductory news conference on Saturday, so he turned to one of his new bosses.

“Carl Crawford wanted to wear a red tie to his presser,” Gammons tweeted. “[Red Sox executive VP and COO] Sam Kennedy gave him a Liverpool FC tie, thus merging MLB and Premier League.”

Liverpool FC, of course, is the English Premier League soccer club purchased by Red Sox owner John Henry and his business group Fenway Sports Ventures.

It was a busy day for Red Sox ownership with the Crawford news conference at 10 a.m., followed by a 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff for Liverpool’s match with Newcastle.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
