About five months ago, Red Sox brass introduced slugger Adrian Gonzalez to Red Sox Nation.

Now, 11 games into the 2011 regular season, the Sox are holding another news conference for Gonzalez — this time to announce the first baseman's contract extension on Friday afternoon at Fenway Park.

As if this news couldn't get any better, NESN will be there for live coverage.

Tune in to NESN At 3 p.m. ET to catch Gonzo, general manager Theo Epstein and other members of the Sox brass as they announce this momentous signing.

NESN.com's Red Sox reporter Tony Lee will be on hand to offer complete coverage, as well.
