Jason Varitek & Tim Wakefield
Fenway Park erupted at the sight of these guys. It was magic.
But as the two were coming from the monster, Youk was out front stretching and Papi was at the end of the dugout. Both saw that the whole dugout was applauding, but it wasn’t enough. Youk started to wave his arms up and Papi looked down and said, “‘Ey! Get up, stand up!” And they stood.
Dewey and Jim came out, the kids from Wake’s charity came out, it was just perfection. Not a soul was sitting. Afterwards, of course, they all went through the dugout and hugged everyone. Papi’s hugs were godly, of course. I don’t know it was announced on TV, but both are getting their own days at Fenway Park this season. :)
