Jon Lester: Fatherhood Has Helped Me Out On The Field (Video)

1,792

Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester is a father first and a baseball player second.

The southpaw joined Tom Caron and Tim Wakefield on “Red Sox First Pitch” on Father’s Day to talk about how fatherhood has impacted him on the diamond. Aside from Lester’s son becoming old enough to hang out on the field during batting practice without his dad worrying about him (as much), the pitcher said his little guy has helped him mature as well as made him put things in perspective.

Check out the video above to hear more from Lester.
