I just watched Jon Lester throw a no-hitter against the Kansas City Royals…and my son watched with me.
I woke Will up for the start of the 9th inning and I swear it was like he knew what was going on. He was transfixed on the TV and we celebrated together as Lester got the final strikeout. From beating cancer to pitching a near-perfect game…it was a good night! For the Red Sox and for one of their youngest fans!!
