Mike Lowell Appreciative of Boston Fans, Says Career Has Come 'Full Circle' With his parents in attendance, his children on the field and the team that drafted him looking on, Saturday was the perfect ending to a career for Mike Lowell.

The Red Sox infielder’s career will officially come to a close on Sunday afternoon, but his last game was Saturday. A day after being honored by the organization, his teammates and the fans and city of Boston, Lowell sat down with Hall of Famer Peter Gammons on Red Sox Gameday Live.

“I think the best part about it was, I think my whole baseball life came full circle,” Lowell said. “I think it started with something as simple as playing catch with my dad, and it ended with having my kids being able to see finish up.”

Lowell also talked about how special it was for him to be able to play five seasons in front of a passionate group of fans like the Red Sox have. 

“I always said I appreciate so much playing in front of a full house with passion because I have passion for baseball,” he said. “It could be bad weather, it could be a Tuesday night, it could be against a last-place team. It doesn’t matter. There’s a different kind of energy in this stadium that you can’t help but get up for.”
