With the recent trade that saw Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis sent to the Chicago White Sox, I figured it was time to create my “Tributes” page to pay homage to him and the rest of the Boston sports legends that have either been traded away or retired.
Kevin Youkilis was with the Red Sox for eight years and was a big part of their success. He always had a great eye and knew when to swing and when not too. Then, he started hitting for power to make him even more dangerous. While his skills have been declining over the past few years, he was still a true Boston sports leader and one of the fans’ favorite players. Even with his decline, you know he’s a solid player when the president of the United States, Barack Obama, is quoted as saying “Finally, Boston I just want to say — thank-you for Youkilis” as he was traded to the team Obama roots for.
So, with so many legendary Boston sports players that have come, left their mark, and gone, let’s pay tribute to them and relive the glory. You can get to the “Tributes” page via the toolbar along the top of this blog or by following this link:
