Jason Varitek

1985 Fleer – Jason Varitek

With Tek retiring I thought that he deserved another day on this site. My favorite player was a catcher on the Red Sox, and ever since then I have taken a little notice of the other backstops in Boston. Rich Gedman was the one in the 80’s that caught my eye. For a long time now Jason Varitek has been the guy. I took this picture last August while Jason was catching against the White Sox. I was happy that he caught the Sunday game so that I could see him catch one last time. Varitek has really succeeded at every level that he has played. Look up his stats, and you will be impressed with how his teams have done over the years. Boston has a huge hole to fill.  (more…)

1985 Topps – Jason Varitek

Anyone who reads either of my two blogs knows that I like the catcher position more than any other. That being said how can you not like a guy like Jason Varitek? He played one game for the Red Sox in 1997 and has been their catcher ever since. He was also named their third captain after the 2004 World Series win. He recently signed a one year deal to stay in Boston for the 2011 season. He really is a staple for the Red Sox. (more…)
