Kevin Youkilis knew that when he returned to Fenway Park for the first time since being traded to the Chicago White Sox he would be seeing a lot of familiar faces, and he was looking forward to it.

In his return to Boston on Monday night, Youkilis was able to catch up with his former teammates and say a proper goodbye to the fans who supported him and the ballpark that he called home for eight seasons.

Youkilis, who was awarded a warm welcome from fans in his first at-bat, was also afforded the opportunity to face pitcher Aaron Cook, who he grew up with in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Check out the video above to hear from Youkilis about his return to Boston.

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.
