Congratulations Red Sox Nation!
I was thrilled to recognize the Red Sox for their outstanding, historic season on the floor of the United States Senate this morning.
The Red Sox mean so much to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts — and this year, they have been a special symbol of Boston’s strength and resilience.
From their historic worst-to-first turnaround, to their first win in front of the Fenway Faithful since 1918, to their scruffy beards, this Sox team will be remembered forever for its heart as much as it will for its success.
Like all of us in Massachusetts, they have shown what it means to be Boston Strong.
I am honored every day to represent the people of Massachusetts and the values that we stand for, and I’m especially proud to congratulate our team today.
