Jason Varitek’s Unique Approach to Baseball Honored by Players, Writers and Fans (Video)

Jason Varitek approached every baseball game in the same way because he loved the game so much.

Not only was he a great player, but also a great person on and off the field. Although Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees may disagree, true Red Sox fans — and really, baseball fans in general — know how much he meant to the game, its players, and all those around the Red Sox organization.

Hear Tom Caron, Nick Cafardo, Peter Abraham and former major leaguer Matt Stairs discuss Varitek's impact on the game in a segment from Red Sox First Pitch in the video above.
