My dad had season tickets when Johnny managed the Knoxville (Tennessee) Smokies in 1959. We had box seats at the end of the home team dugout and had small conversations with him often. The highlight came when I got to take him a box of chewing tobacco in the dressing room-I was only 13 years old. He found a ball and signed it for me and I still treasure this more than autographed balls I have purchased. He was a prince of a man. Rest in peace.

MY FATHER WAS IN FLIGHT SCHOOL WITH JOHNNY PESKY AND TED WILLIAMS DURING WW2. HE MET TED WHILE HE WAS IN BOSTON DEIDICATING THE TUNNEL IN HIS NAME. TED REMEMBERED MY FATHER AND HIS NICKNAME AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS. THESE GUYS WERE ALL SHARP RIGHT UNTIL THE END. GOD BLESS THEM.

First, my condolences to the family of Johnny Pesky.

Living most of my life in Indiana, I have been asked more times then I can remember why I have been a Red Sox fan for over 60 years. Simple. It came about because of my love for players like Johnny Pesky, Ted Williams, Dom DiMaggio, Bobby Doerr, Mel Parnell and a host of other ball players that I loved so much when I was a youngster. Read the book The Teammates: a Portrait of a Friendship by David Halberstram and you will understand why I love the Boston Redsox and why I loved Johnny Pesky.

I never had the opportunity to meed Johnny Pesky, but I will always fondly remember him as Mr. Reds Sox.

I have a picture of him sitting on a bag of baseballs with a fungoe bat in hand= it looks like it was taken during spring training in the early eighties. I love Johnny Pesky. Rest in peace my friend!

First my condolences to the family. Never got to meet the man, but wish I had the honour of doing so. I saw his heart felt ways on television each time he was at the park. He will be missed by many. Am glad he got his 2004 World Series ring before his passing. Red Sox Nation will never forget Number 6. R.I.P.
The Red Sox now has a guardian angel to watch over them now.
