Please Come To Boston: Red Sox Trying To Win Back Disgruntled Season-Ticket Holders
Published February 27, 2013
NO LOSS FOR WORDS: Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine yesterday was introduced as the new AD at Sacred Heart Univ., and he defended his time with the team last season. He said, "I thought I did a hell of a job in Boston. I thought what had to be done there was done, except for winning a pennant -- but Connie Mack wasn't going to win with that team." Valentine is "confident his time at Fenway hasn't tarnished his legacy," despite the "losses and the messy ending." He said, "It's six months of a 62-year life. It's six months of a 42-year career in baseball. It's a blip, a little spot on the radar, as far as I'm concerned" (N.Y. POST, 2/27).
