(NECN: Jennifer Eagan) - Johnny Pesky made his major league debut on April 14, 1942 in a Boston Red Sox uniform.  He played for the Red Sox until 1952 when he went to the Detroit Tigers, but came back years later as a manager.  Pesky was a fixture at Fenway and is immortalized along with Red Sox greats Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, and Dom DiMaggio in a statue outside of Fenway Park.

Dick Flavin, a writer, former broadcaster, and longtime friend of Pesky's wrote a poem for No. 6.  It was a tribute in life and now is a fitting remembrance to the Red Sox legend.
