Nomar Garciaparra got to fulfill yet another one of his dreams yesterday. Lucky bastard. As if playing major league baseball for years wasn’t enough.
Nomar was granted a one day contract with the Boston Red Sox so he could retire as a Red Sox team member. He’s retiring after 13 seasons but isn’t going anywhere. Nomar will appear on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight.
Ending his playing career in Boston was an emotional experience that brought him home, he said.
I was getting choked up then, I’m choked up now, and I’ve got the chills.
