Johnny Pesky Turns 91 Today

Today is Johnny Pesky's 91st birthday. The picture above was taken 49 years ago, when Johnny was a mere 42 years of age. He's the second guy from the right. The little guy who's the first kid on the left is your humble Editor-In-Chief, mugging with the ex-Sox star for a Somerville Little League raffle (they actually gave away cars back then). Johnny was as kind to those little kids then as he is now. He is the ultimate Red Sox ambassador. Long live Johnny!
