The setup, it turns out, was executed perfectly. Orr spent the bottom of the sixth inning inside the fabled Green Monster, even peering through the scoreboard window between pitches. So when Bay, Boston's left fielder, came out to play defense in the top of the seventh, Orr stood on the warning track in front of the Monster and shook hands with Bay.Full Story
"Someone had given me a little heads up that he was out there," said Bay. "I was under the impression that he was going to heckle me or something for an inning. But he just waved me over and said, 'Nice to meet you.' I knew he was around. I didn't know if I'd see him after the game. Little did I know it would be during the game. It was a thrill, nonetheless."
So Jason Bay is a Bobby Orr fan! I'd be so happy I'd be jumping up and down after meeting Bobby that I'll fly 10 feet to catch a ball!
