On Monday afternoon, one of the great ambassadors of baseball passed away.
Johnny Pesky, a man who dedicated his life to the game that he so loved for over six decades, died at the age of 92. While Pesky will always be remembered for his unabashed love of the Boston Red Sox, he is also remembered for his unwavering passion for the game and for the people that played it.
The Red Sox have honored Pesky in various ways over the years by retiring his number; by having him raise the World Series championship banner in 2005; and countless other ways.
But Pesky's Pole is a feature that has become one of the most talked-about parts of Fenway Park.
In honor of Mr. Pesky and in honor of the terrific man that he was, we will take a look at various features at different ballparks throughout MLB.
