Saturday marked a special anniversary for Mitch Moreland, and the Boston Red Sox organization wanted to show him some love.
Moreland, who’s amid his fourth season with the Red Sox, officially has reached 10 years of MLB service. Boston celebrated the anniversary with a pregame presentation to the first baseman, prior to the Red Sox facing the Washington Nationals at Fenway Park.
Moreland has been a major contributor to the team’s success since his arrival in Boston in 2017. He was named an MLB All-Star in 2018, prior to the Red Sox winning the World Series later that season.
Moreland’s contributions have been plentiful this season, as well. The 34-year-old has compiled a .349 batting average with 22 hits and eight home runs in 21 games this season.
