Andrew Benintendi Called His Dad Immediately After Hearing Of Red Sox Promotion

Andrew Benintendi has reached the big show, but he’s not too big time to call his old man.

The Boston Red Sox’s No. 2 prospect was called to the majors early Tuesday morning following Monday’s 2-1 win against the Seattle Mariners, and he met with the Boston media before Tuesday night’s game for the first time.

Among the things we learned included his first call upon learning of his promotion: His dad.

Atta boy, Andrew.

Check out more from Benintendi, as seen on NESN’s “Red Sox Gameday Live,” in the video above.
