OK, Some Good News… Pesky’s Number Retired
After the catastrophic numbers we’ve been hearing about on Wall Street today, here’s one number we can feel good about. Red Sox stalwart Johnny Pesky’s number was retired on the last day of his team’s 2008 regular season. At age 89, after 57 years in the game with his beloved team, Pesky saw his number 6 unveiled on the upper deck of Fenway Park Sunday, just above the right field pole named in his honor. His eyes got a little misty.
