Victorino Breaks Down At Farewell Press Conference
Back in 2004, Red Sox fans heaped tons of praise—deservedly so—on Derek Lowe for winning each of the three clinching post-season games on the road to glory. As we say 'goodbye' to Shane Victorino, we should be mindful of a similar feat The Flyin' Hawaiian performed in 2013. Victorino knocked in the winning run in each of the three clinching post-season series games in that magical year. That's pretty special. And something we should never forget. And don't underestimate the positive power of his optimistic walk-up song—Bob Marley's 'Gonna Be All Right (Three Little Birds)'. Fans adopted it as one of their favorite Red Sox sing-along anthems. He was a solid player for most of the time he was healthy in Boston, and it will be tough to find a player who can so skillfully roam the no-man's land that is right field in Fenway. Best of luck, Shane!
