Shane Victorino Can’t Wait to Call Fenway Park Home, Loves Boston’s Baseball Tradition (Video)


Shane Victorino has had the privilege of playing on some winning teams. He’s also had a chance to perform on the big stage within a big baseball market. Boston, however, offers something unique.

Victorino, who was introduced at a news conference on Thursday, said that he’s “beyond ecstatic” to join the Red Sox. The veteran outfielder said he’s often asked which ballpark is his favorite, and he can’t help but marvel at Fenway Park and Wrigley Field because of their respective traditions.

Fortunately for Victorino, he’ll now have the opportunity to call Fenway home. While in Boston, Victorino said he intends to bring plenty of energy to whichever spot in the lineup manager John Farrell puts him.

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.
