Will Middlebrooks Bests Joel Hanrahan in Blowout, Captures Beautyrest Baggo Classic Championship (Video)


“Take baggo seriously, it’s a top-three sport now.”

With those words, Will Middlebrooks capped off his Cinderella run to capture the Beautyrest Baggo Classic. The Red Sox third baseman took on newcomer Joel Hanrahan in the final, besting his teammate 8-3 to take home the hardware. For Middlebrooks, it was a chance to see his “offseason training” pay off, while for Hanrahan it was a chance to earn a dinner from Middlebrooks he doesn’t think is actually coming.

Check out the action from the championship round of baggo in the video above.

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.
