In the 2013 postseason, Victorino drove in the winning run in the clinching game of all three series’ including this memorable grand slam:
And of course, who could forget the Fenway faithful singing along to his walk-up song, “Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley.
It’s too bad that his glory days with the Sox were short-lived, but Shane Victorino will always be appreciated in Boston and we wish him the best in Anaheim.
