Before suiting up against the Padres on Tuesday, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia took a little detour.
Pedroia stopped by Dana-Farber’s David B. Perini, Jr. Quality of Life Clinic, where he spent time hanging out, signing autographs and playing some Wii with a number of young Jimmy Fund patients.
“You have a responsibility to come here. All of our guys do,” Pedroia said. “All of us have a part in coming here and trying to see the kids and helping out any way we can.”
Check out more from Pedroia’s visit in the video above.

Sitting 16 games over .500, the Boston Red Sox are receiving significant contributions from players all over their roster, which has translated into early-season success.

The bullpen is one area where Boston may look for some help due to recent struggles in the closer position. An additional position player, as well as another starter now that Clay Buchholz‘s injury continues to linger, could also...
If it’s a special day in America, it’s a special day at the ballpark, and this Independence Day is no exception.

The buzz is back at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox have an American League-leading 51-34 record so far this season, and the team is showing no signs of slowing. Their momentum is due, in part, to the depth on the Sox roster. There have been peaks and valleys, but it’s been hard to pinpoint one player on the roster who has single-handedly carried the team.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Jonny Gomes gets a lot of praise for being a "good clubhouse guy." But after Wednesday night's pinch-hit walk-off home run at Fenway Park in a 2-1 win over the San Diego Padres, Gomes should probably...
Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley has his own form of baseball vernacular. Words like "high cheese", "electric gas", "hair" and "iron" all seem to make their way into an Eck conversation. But it was in 1993 that Eckersley coined a phrase that is universally used across baseball now: the walk-off.
