Jim Rice, Matt Stairs Break Down Art of ‘Man Hug’ After Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Felix Doubront’s Moment (Video)


Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia share a special relationship as  battery mates. But on Thursday they shared an even more special moment.

The two Red Sox players shared one of the most awkward "man hugs" of all time after the pitcher came out of the game.

Hall of Famer Jim Rice and former Red Sox player Matt Stairs spent some time breaking down the hug and even provided some in-depth analysis on the art of the "man hug" during Friday's Red Sox Gameday Live, presented by UNO.

Check out the video above to see Jim, Matt and Tom Caron hug it out.

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.
