A well deserved retired number... player, manager, broadcaster, executive, and the iconic "Pesky pole"... he gave many years to the Red Sox. RIP Johnny.

Beautiful pic of women gathered around while he signs autographs! And of course the most beautiful pic - showing off his ring.

It's so wonderful that he was able to be part of the championships.
