Johnny Pesky is "Mr. Red Sox," having served as player, coach, and goodwill ambassador for over 60 years in Boston. Here he is shown honing his bat. Johnny once told us that after World War II, the wood that was available for bats was green and wet, so a lot of work was needed to create a good bat. He said that Ted Williams was the master at finishing a good bat. Photo by Richard V. Thomson, Collection of the Sports Museum.
