Johnny Pesky Autographed 2004 World Series Baseball w "We Did It"
Few men anywhere in the world can claim to have
a pole named after them, but Johnny Pesky can. Pesky was a popular
and talented player during his days with the Boston Red Sox. Though
he was a lifetime .307 hitter, Pesky only hit 17 career home runs,
including seven at Fenway Park. One of those home runs gave
teammate Mel Parnell a win in 1948, and the
pitcher-turned-broadcaster soon dubbed the foul pole at the end of
Fenway's short right field line the "Pesky Pole" in Pesky's honor.
Pesky actually spent seven-plus seasons with the Red Sox and
counted among his close pals teammates Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr
and Dom DiMaggio. He later managed the team and remains a part of
the Red Sox organization. He was on hand for both the Red Sox' 2004
World Series triumph and the ensuing ring presentation ceremony in
2005, and still serves the team as a special instructor and
goodwill ambassador. Johnny Pesky has hand signed this official
Major League Baseball and added the special inscription, "We did
it!" as a tribute to Ted Williams, who didn't live to see the Sox'
World Series success. A MLB Hologram and Certificate of
Authenticity are included.
