David Ortiz, Red Sox Team Up With John Krasinski To Honor Healthcare Workers

Looking for a reason to smile Monday morning?

This should help.

Massachusetts native John Krasinski, an actor most well known for playing Jim Halpert in “The Office,” has started a web series called “Some Good News” amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose, as you probably gathered, is to spread some of the good news happening around the world during such a challenging time.

Krasinski really pulled out all the stops for his latest edition.

He enlisted the help of David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox to honor healthcare workers in Boston. Ortiz had a message thanking those healthcare professionals, who then got to ride a duck boat to Fenway Park where they not only were greeted with applause on the video board by current Red Sox, but also got to throw a pitch and run the bases.
