Williams, Geddy, Herrmann Visit BoSox

Red Sox left-handed reliever Randy Williams (pictured) joined members of the BoSox Club for their luncheon at the Westin Hotel in Waltham on Wednesday, August 3rd. Randy talked about his path to the major leagues, and discussed his interactions with 2004 Red Sox hero Kevin Millar—who attended the same college as Randy.

Also on hand were Rich Gedman, star of the 1986 American League Championship Red Sox, and current hitting coach of the Lowell Spinners. Rich recounted stories about that great '86 team and, in particular, his role in the 20-strikeout game by Roger Clemens.

Former Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Trupiano emceed the event, which also included Indians broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus, and the Tribe's right-handed relief pitcher, Frank Herrmann (a Harvard graduate).
