Former Red Sox Closer Bob Stanley Nostalgic In Fenway Return (Video)


When the Toronto Blue Jays came to Fenway Park for their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, they brought a Red Sox legend with them.

Former Sox closer Bob Stanley was hired as the Blue Jays bullpen coach before the start of this season. Stanley spent his entire 13-year career with the Sox and led the team in saves (132) at the time of his retirement in 1989 until Jonthan Papelbon passed him in 2009.

Stanley was nostalgic about being back at Fenway.

“I always dreamed about playing for the Red Sox when I was a kid because I was born in Maine…so I was always a Red Sox fan,” Stanley said. “So then when my dream came true, and I got drafted by them, and I got to play here at Fenway, it’s like I said. It’s a dream come true.”
