Lowell Named FN's First Citizen

The Editors of FenwayNation are pleased to announce that Mike Lowell has been named the 2010 FenwayNation First Citizen. For his numerous charitable efforts—and simply the way he treated people—Mike has shown himself to be one of the classiest people ever to don a Red Sox uniform. The Mike Lowell Foundation funds memorable experiences to help make the daily lives of patients, especially those dealing with cancer, happier and less stressful.

All you need to know about his character was summed up in his speech to Red Sox fans before his final game, "I just want to thank God for allowing me the privilege and the opportunity to wear this jersey, to play in this ballpark, to represent the city of Boston, and to share so many memories with all of you. Thank you very much.’’

Lowell joins Bill Mueller, Tim Wakefield, Kevin Youkilis, Mike Timlin and Curt Schilling as previous FN First Citizen Award recipients.

Congratulations to Mike Lowell, the 2010 FenwayNation First Citizen. We will miss you, Mikey!
