'Oil Can', Andrew Miller Visit BoSox Club

Lanky (6'7") Red Sox left-handed starter Andrew Miller visited the BoSox Club at their luncheon today at the Westin Hotel in Waltham. Also in attendance were former Sox star Dennis 'Oil Can' Boyd—of the 1986 American League Championship team.

Radio and TV personality Dale Arnold emceed the event, which also included appearances by Bob Davis (long-time Royals broadcaster) and Royals LHP Tim Collins (from Worcester, MA).

Oil Can shared his advice with the attendees (and the two young pitchers) by stressing "first-pitch strikes" and "pitching to contact" to get hitters out. He talked about how even power pitchers—like his former teammate Roger Clemens—pitched to contact. As "The Can" pointed out, this also leads to shorter ballgames.
