David Price and Mookie Betts have taken the Boston Red Sox’s victory tour to the Music City.
The Nashville Predators and their fans gave the Red Sox pitcher and outfielder a rousing ovation at Bridgestone Arena during Thursday night’s game against the Vancouver Canucks.
Decked out in Predators jerseys, Price and Betts were enjoying the game with family and friends in the first period when the team used the jumbotron to formally welcome them home.
The crowd roared for Betts, a Nashville native, and Price, who hails from nearby Murfreesboro, Tenn., in celebration of their 2018 World Series triumph with the Red Sox. Price and Betts responded in kind.
The Red Sox’s boys from Tennessee all the love they receive in their hometowns, both the original and adopted ones.
