Red Sox Hall of Fame day is always a special one around Fenway Park, and this year’s induction was particularly memorable. Yesterday, broadcaster Joe Castiglione, former shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, and former pitchers Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez were inducted as the newest members of the team’s Hall of Fame.
This was a busy day of shooting, but it was a pleasure to be on hand for this event and hear so many stories from those guys’ careers.
Here are the highlights from the Hall of Fame luncheon, pre-game ceremony, and game. I also threw in some photos of former Boston College baseball player and ALS fundraiser, Pete Frates, accepting the recently trending Ice Bucket Challenge in front of the Green Monster and of the “Rocket” Roger Clemens throwing batting practice to his kids before the game.
Here are a some images from Sunday evening’s public memorial service for Boston Red Sox great Johnny Pesky, who passed away earlier this season. This was an interesting event to cover, as it brought together multiple generations of players and members of the Red Sox organization.
It’s difficult not to get good pictures when you have so many legends sitting in one spot together. It’s always good when you get Pedro Martinez, Roger Clemens, David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury, Tim Wakefield, Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice, and Reggie Smith to name a few at the same time.
