Johnny Pesky salutes the fans in his classic Red Sox jersey.

Johnny Pesky, a former Boston Red Sox player, manager and broadcaster and one of the most beloved men in the team’s storied history, died last Monday, August 13, 2012.  He was 92 years old.

Pesky was with the Red Sox, in one capacity or another, for more than six decades!  He was so highly involved with everything Red Sox that pretty much every person in New England knew him, had met him, and/or had a story about him.  He was automatically everyone’s friend and the smile that he always wore brought joy to our hearts.  He will be greatly missed.  May he rest in peace.
