The Boston Red Sox defeated the Washington Nationals in the final game of the 2021 regular season to clinch the top seed in the American League Wild Card standings ahead of the postseason. During the game, the Nationals recognized franchise cornerstone, Ryan Zimmerman, who may retire following this season. Following a dramatic come from behind victory, the Red Sox celebrated with champagne in the clubhouse. Great to be along for this ride again!
Last week, Boston Red Sox players reported to Fenway Park for Summer Camp. The training period marks the beginning of the 2020 Major League Baseball season after it was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Below is a gallery of images from the arrival activity.
Matt Barnes has become an anchor of the Red Sox bullpen since his Major League debut with the club in 2013. Through a World Series Championship in 2018, Barnes remains hungrier than ever to succeed, and has spent his offseason working out in preparation for the 2020 season. A New Englander himself, Barnes chooses to live in his hometown of Newtown, Connecticut over the winters. Red Sox content crews caught up with Barnes for a glimpse into his winter routine in Connecticut
Here are some from last night’s win against the Yankees, during which Mookie Betts hit three home runs. I’m feeling like I’ve been in a creative rut lately, so I tried to force myself out of it by roaming a bit. Not entirely happy with the result, and could have done much better during the Gatorade shower at the end.
I think this happens around this time of the season every year, but I’m not positive. I just need to keep grinding my way through it until it clicks.
A bit late on this one. In this inter league game against the Colorado Rockies, I witnessed one of the most impressive, historic pitching performances I’ll ever see. Chris Sale struck out 17 batters over 7 innings. It was unbelievable.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get the job done on a Red Sox win, but I feel lucky to be able to have witnessed such a feat.
I’m on the road with the team in Baltimore for a few games before we head to Washington, D.C. to visit the White House. It’s always good to come home and shoot at the place where it all started for me.
