Red Sox welcome Shane Victorino to Boston

Energy, character, and playoff experience were the main talking points as the Red Sox introduced outfielder Shane Victorino Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park. General manager Ben Cherington praised Victorino’s versatility both on and off the field.

“He’s been a big part of great teams,” said Cherington. “He’s a guy who can do a lot of things on the baseball field: Great defender, great baserunner, hitter from both sides of the plate, and one of the highest-energy guys in the game. We’re thrilled to add him to our team and to our clubhouse.”
