Shane Victorino brings plenty of on-field talent to the equation, but Red Sox Nation might soon learn to love The Flyin’ Hawaiian for his exuberant personality.
Victorino showed off some of that personality at his introductory news conference on Thursday, saying that he intends to just be himself while donning a Red Sox uniform. For those unfamiliar with Victorino’s body of work, that means being a fun, energetic, passionate and talkative guy — in other words, exactly the type of player Boston fans have come to love over the years.
Victorino said he’s ecstatic to join the Sox organization, and he’s thrilled to play alongside the likes of David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and the other players already in place for 2013. As Victorino notes, winning solves everything, and he’s looking forward to getting the job done in Beantown.
