Joel Hanrahan ‘Excited’ to Play in Boston, Intrigued by Chance to Pitch at Fenway Park (Video)


After two straight lights-out seasons as closer for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Joel Hanrahan is ready for a new challenge with the Red Sox.

The 31-year-old right-hander toured Fenway Park for the first time as a member of the Red Sox on Wednesday, and as he made his way through the historic ballpark, learned a bit about his new home. While Hanrahan admitted that he was a little worried about the ballpark’s reputation coming in, he’s more comfortable now that he’s gotten a chance to see the place.

Tom Caron sat down with the new Red Sox closer on Red Sox Now. Check out some highlights from the conversation in the video above.
