Saying Goodbye to The Eck [VIDEO]
Wednesday, October 5th was the last day of the 2022 MLB Regular Season. It marked the last broadcast of Hall-of-Famer Dennis Eckersley who retired from the booth.
The Red Sox produced a fantastic video that was played during the game honoring Eckersley.
Red Sox fans have been blessed to have such announcers as Eckersley and the late Jerry Remy bringing games on TV into our homes.
