Sox fans can show loyalty for eternity
Massachusetts funeral home unveils Red Sox casket
ROCKLAND, Mass. -- Lifelong Red Sox fans can now take their love of the team to the next level -- eternity.
A Massachusetts funeral home recently took delivery of the first Red Sox casket, which features the team logo on the exterior as well as the inside.
The casket is manufactured by Eternal Image of Michigan, which has a licensing agreement with Major League Baseball.
Bob Biggins, co-director of Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home in Rockland, tells The Boston Globe families in mourning often want their loved ones buried with favorite items. In the past that's included Red Sox paraphernalia; the casket takes it to the next step.
Biggins says the family that chose the $3,000 Red Sox casket bearing serial number 0001 did not hesitate in picking it for their father.
