Sox players brave the cold to greet fans
BOSTON (WHDH) -- They are called the boys of summer, but some Boston Red Sox players got a first-hand feel of the Bay State’s deep freeze.
The Red Sox teamed up with Dunkin Donuts trying to warm up their fans. They offered hot chocolate, autographs and pictures outside Copley Plaza Wednesday Morning.
The meet and greet came on the coldest day in the city in nearly two years.
Players Daniel Nava and Ryan Kalish might be used to the weather, but for newcomers Daniel Ross and Jonny Gomes the cold was a bit of a shock to the system.
“Coming from where I’m from and not seeing snow and cold weather it’s nice to be in it…stay in it and stand out in it? I don’t know about that,” said Ross.
“I left the warmest day in Scottsdale, Ariz. 82 degrees yesterday, so…little different, but I’ll tell you what, if there’s blue skies I’m okay with it,” said Gomes.
The weather was no match for a green monster; Wally even handed out tickets to some lucky people.
