Cameron, who turns 37 in January, said that playing at historic Fenway Park in front of such a passionate fan base will be a “youthful experience” and that he’s looking forward to playing in a baseball cathedral.
Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein and Terry Francona sat alongside Cameron at the news conference, where Cameron said he was willing to play any outfield position. Epstein said that Cameron’s willingness to play anywhere for the team was a major reason the Red Sox pursued him.
“Mike communicated through [his agent] that his first concern was just winning and that he would do whatever was necessary and play any position to help the club win,” Epstein said. “So once Mike expressed that attitude, it really got our attention, and we realized that he could be a part of our new outfield if things broke a certain way.”
The first part of the conference can be seen below.
