Outfielder Happy to be in Boston


The Boston Red Sox continued their re-building efforts Tuesday by inking outfielder Shane Victorino to a contract worth $39 million. 

And suffice it to say...the 32-year-old was excited.  

“It’s great, an opportunity for me to go to an organization and a team that has had success and have won World Series in recent years," Victorino told the Maui News.  "The last two years have been rough for them coming off so many successful years, but I think it is an opportunity for me to go out there, have fun, enjoy playing in front of a great fan base and, you know, I’m so excited for the opportunity.”

Oh...and just hours after signing a deal with Boston, the "Flyin' Hawaiian" was tweeting pictures of him and his family celebrating in BoSox gear. 

That's excitement!
