I’ve lost a hero and Oregon has lost a great native

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty LLC 200311024

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.

Todd, I hate that you never got to meet him. Surely a great loss to many.

Todd-I agree Johnny will certainly be missed. I remember when his playing days were over he managed our Seattle Rainiers for a few years. Great memories. 


Take care

Todd, I know you have a passion for the game and can certainly see you had a strong admiration for Johnny Pesky.  Like you say many stories to tell and a legacy remembered at the Pesky Pole.  I know he would be glad to know you were a fan!

Oh, how sad! Mr. Pesky will live long in the memories and hearts of so many. In a way, that makes him pretty lucky. So sorry for you to have lost a hero.

Well since you don't show your handsome realtor face in your profile pic and you DO show a "home base" and broom...I'd say you are a big baseball fan! Your enthusiasm for Johnny is admirable!


Take care o' you and hi to your family!
