Minnesota Twins first baseman Chris Colabello was born just a stone’s throw away from Fenway Park in Framingham, Mass. Though he spent part of his childhood in Italy, Colabello graduated from Milford High School in Milford, Mass., and went on to graduate from Assumption College in Worcester.

Though he’s not in the Twins’ lineup Tuesday night, seeing the NESN cameras and Red Sox jerseys brought back childhood memories for the 30-year-old.

Hear what Colabello had to say about facing the Red Sox in the video above.
