MO VAUGHN gets it. Vaughn, who spent eight of his 14 major league seasons with Red Sox, was a hero to many Boston fans.
On Thursday, he turned the tables by taking out a half-page ad in the Boston Globe to let the world know that his heroes are those who sprung into action after the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Here is an excerpt:
"I'm deeply saddened by the tragic events that took place this past Monday at The Boston Marathon. Patriots Day is the one day each year that this great city celebrates the bravery and heroism of the people that live here. As a community, you quickly pulled together by rushing to the aid of the many injured - first responders, runners and the spectators themselves - you all are heroes in my eyes. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the City of Boston, especially to the families and friends of those who lost their lives or were injured in this horrible incident.
