Red Sox shortstop and known as the grandfather of the franchise and the first player to have a foul pole named after him.
RIP Johnny.

I will be at the next home game at Fenway Park, which is next Tuesday. I'm expecting for them to have a huge pregame memorial ceremony for him.

I always thought Johnny Pesky and Cecil Travis both should have gotten more consideration for the Hall Of Fame after missing prime years during WW2. R.I.P.

Boston lost a legend. They're sad all over Beantown tonight. No word from Bob Ryan.

Boston Herald had a stunning tribute to Pesky :angry:
