The newest Celtic received a Boston welcome Friday night, as four-time All-Star Al Horford threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park.

Horford signed a signed a four-year, $113 million deal with Boston last Saturday.

At his introductory press conference on Friday, Horford told reporters, "The biggest thing for me is to come in and [do] whatever Coach wants me to do, anything that has to do with the team."

And the Red Sox? They beat the Rays, 6-5.
