Long time and beloved figure of the Red Sox organization Dick Bresciani passed away this weekend.

His thumbprint on the Red Sox was indelible.

His wife, my first grade teacher, was instrumental in making me a baseball fanatic.

If it wasn’t for Mrs. Bresciani, there would be no Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
