I watched this on ESPN yesterday and had tears in my eyes for this man. What he went threw as a Red Sox "goat" and could never set foot in Boston or Fenway. And anyone who watched this game, a thousand times for me knows he did not lose the game for the Sox, many players already helped lose it including Schiraldi, Stanley, Gedman, etc. It was a team collapse and the media placed the blame on Buckner. Sad. But, the fans welcomed him yesterday.
Anyone who doesn't think players feel pain just watch this video. 22 years in exile. I apologize for the fans of Boston.
