Johnny Pesky Remembered by Peter Gammons as Great Ambassador for Red Sox, Baseball (Video)

It was a sad Monday for all of Red Sox Nation, as word spread that Johnny Pesky had passed away.

Involved with the team for parts of eight different decades, Pesky filled numerous roles in the organization, from player to coach, to manager, to broadcaster, to ambassador for the Red Sox and all of baseball. His number may reside in right field forever retired, and the right field foul pole may forever retain his name, but Pesky will still be missed.

In the wake of Pesky's passing, Peter Gammons joined NESN Daily to talk about and share rememberances of the departed, singling out the way he held himself as an ambassador for the Red Sox and the esteem Pesky received not just from those within the organization, but all around baseball — including the hated Yankees.

Watch the video above to hear everything Gammons had to say about the Red Sox' lost friend.
