johnny pesky: I’ve lost a hero and Oregon has lost a great native - 08/13/12 07:16 AM
As many of you know I am a huge baseball fan and I’ve also written a post or two about an Oregon native who became a Boston hero. Johnny Pesky was from Silverton, Oregon and played for the Silverton Red Sox and then eventually went on to play for the Boston Red Sox. (Go there and ask about the Pesky Pole and hear some great stories)
Johnny, you will be missed and though I was hoping to meet you, just never got the opportunity despite you coming back to see your brother every couple years and being here at the last Beaver’s … (6 comments)

johnny pesky: Today was the last Portland Beavers Baseball Game in Portland… We will miss you, I hope we proved that! - 09/06/10 06:36 PM

Silverton, Oregon, is a small community that is rich in History. Despite its small size it has had many famous residents: Clark Gabel, Don Pettit (Astronaut), and Homer Davenport (Famous Political Cartoonist from the early 1900s), and Johnny Pesky (Red Sox baseball).
Each room at the museum has its own … (4 comments)

johnny pesky: The retiring of a Red Sox jersey – Now for the rest of the story - 09/29/08 04:56 AM
Yesterday was a great day in Boston as the Red Sox retired the jersey of one Johnny Pesky. You don't know who Johnny Pesky is? Well let me tell you the story of Mr. Pesky or as he is called her in Oregon, "Mr. Red Sox."
A couple weeks ago I didn't know who Mr. Pesky was either until I visited the Silverton History museum and found out all about Mr. Pesky and now seeing his number retired is just awesome. You see, in 1938 in Silverton, Oregon, they had a AAA ball club called the Silverton Red Sox. That is where … (7 comments)
