A Visit From Jason Varitek

On Tuesday night, my son had an exciting visitor at his baseball practice.  The Boston Red Sox were in town to open Target Field against the Twins and had a day off on Tuesday.  This gave Jason Varitek, a friend of Johnny's coach, time to attend their practice.

Johnny got some one-on-one coaching on catching technique.

Jason also talked to the kids about working hard and doing well in school.  I brought along some baseballs for him to sign (did you think I'd pass up the opportunity?).  I brought enough for each of the kids and also had him sign some 2005 All Star balls for me and my sons.

The boys were all very excited to meet him and get his autograph.  (I was pretty excited too)

That is really cool!!! He must be a really nice guy. How did your son's coach know him?
