Tim Wakefield Moved to Tears During Emotional ‘Thanks, Wake Day’ Ceremony (Video)

Tim Wakefield returned to Fenway Park on Tuesday, and it was nothing short of memorable.

The longtime Boston knuckleballer was honored by the Red Sox during a pregame ceremony. The scene was an emotional one, as some of Wakefield's friends and former teammates were on hand. There was also a moment when a large group of children emerged from the center-field wall to pay their respects to Wakefield and thank him for touching  their lives.

Wakefield had a way of touching lives, and you can bet he'll continue to do so in his post-playing days.

Check out the emotional ceremony above.
