Alex Hassan Gets His Call-Up To "The Show"

Alex Hassen
If you grew up in Milton, Massachusetts and attended BC High, chances are you dreamed of playing at Fenway Park for the Red Sox. That dream may—as early as tonight—become a reality for Milton's Alex Hassan. The Red Sox called up Hassan from AAA Pawtucket to replace Ryan Lavarnway (who has gone on the DL). Hassan has been on the 40-man roster, but has never actually played at the big league level. His overall minor league stats and his ability to get on-base played a big part in his call-up. Hassan told's Alex Speier, "I feel confident in my abilities...My focus has always been what I can do to become the best player I can be." Here's hoping the 26-year old makes a big splash right away.
