Red Sox Visit BIDMC Transplant Unit
Yesterday's rain didn't dampen spirits on Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Transplant Unit as the annual Red Sox Caravan rolled in to supply holiday cheer.
Hitting coach, Dave Magadan and Red Sox players Michael Bowden, pitcher, Ryan Lavarnway, catcher, Darnell McDonald, outfielder and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, catcher visited more than a dozen pre- and post-transplant patients.
"This is my first time on the caravan," said left fielder McDonald who carried along a bag of Wally dolls to share with patients. "It's a great experience. The patients put a smile on our face just like we try to put a smile on their faces."
