Red Sox Nation lost one of its own as legendary player, coach and mentor Johnny Pesky passed away at 92 earlier this month.
Pesky meant a great deal to everyone in the Red Sox organization, from the front office all the way to the players. Manager Bobby Valentine wanted to make that very clear during his interview on The Bobby Valentine Show on Friday.
The current Sox skipper was passionate when speaking about Pesky, saying that while Pesky may not be here physically, his
"spirit" will always surround the franchise.
