Who is the shortest Red Sox Player in history?

Dustin Pedroia is listed at 5’8’’, he’s at least a bit sensitive about it. He shouldn’t be: Pedroia just does about everything well, and his combination of plate discipline, power, base running skills and defence at second base made him one of the most valuable players in the league.

Why are the Boston Red Sox such a great team?

The Boston Red Sox are a great team for tons of reasons but I am going to tell you about all of their inspiration they have given to Boston. It all started on April 15, 2013. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev set off the bombs that killed 3 leaving 264 people seriously wounded. Days after the bombing Big Papi pumps his fist in front of the American Flag and yelled “This is our… city. And nobody is going to dictate our freedom!” This was put on Live TV right away.

What were some of the biggest crowds in Fenway Park?

Fenway currently boasts an official capacity of 37,673 according to the team, but a whopping 47,627 would cram in Fenway Park for a doubleheader against the Yankees — the best-attended game in Fenway history. It wasn’t the park’s largest crowd ever, though: nearly 60,000 people crammed into Fenway 16 years earlier for a political rally by Irish politician Eamon de Valera author of a handful of books on Red Sox history.

Fact: 21-year-old Xander Bogaerts is just one of eight MLB players under 22 years of age. He recently became the youngest Boston player to start in a postseason game.

Boston and Northeastern University's’ football teams even called Fenway home for stretches.
