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 baseball game.
You will be missed by baseball fans every where, you were a true hero to the game.
