World Series becomes family affair for Sox families
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The 2013 playoff run has become a family affair. Jon Lester's son jumped up to the mic during Monday night’s postgame conference and he even got a hug from Big Papi too.
David Ortiz and Jon Lester may have been the stars on the field, but after listening to reporters, three-year-old Hudson Lester had some questions of his own for his dad.
“You have to grind through six. You give up three runs,” said Jon Lester.
Then it was his turn to talk into the mic.
As busy as this postseason has been, the players have had their families by their side the entire way. Many of their children making the late-night trips home with buses rolling in around 4:00 in the morning.

Little Lester joins a growing list of kids making podium appearances. Shane Victorino showed off his son Kingston during the ALCS. Jake Peavy's boys fielded some questions. Ortiz' son D’Angelo might be almost as recognizable as his dad. Koji Uehara and his son worked out together during the pregame warm up.
Everyone is hoping the next big celebration happens on the field after a World Series Championship.
If the Sox do win the championship, either Wednesday or Thursday night, you can bet some of those “bed times" will be extended for just one more night.
