Oakland Series Brings Three Red Sox Players Close To Home (Video)


The Red Sox’s series against the Oakland A’s should draw a pretty big pro-Boston crowd.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia and outfielders Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava all grew up in California within an hour of the Bay Area. Pedroia and Nava wouldn’t reveal if they had any hometown allegiances, but Gomes admitted that he grew up rooting for the A’s.

Gomes also played for the A’s in 2012 and said that although he’s obviously not a fan any longer, it was still a very special point in his career.

Hear more from Gomes in the video above.
