Mo Vaughn recently took out a half page ad in the Boston Globe expressing his thoughts on the tragic events of the Boston Marathon.
Mo played eight seasons with the Red Sox and won an MVP award in 1995. The last Red Sox player to wear the #42, Mo brought tenacity and strength to the team that only preceded the type of big slugger like David Ortiz.
With this message in the paper, Mo shows he’s not only a historic slugger for the Sox, but a compassionate, awesome individual who loves the town he performed for. He’s always been a favorite of mine and continues to be one for reasons such as this.
