Varitek Emerges

Red Sox captain Jason Varitek made his first appearance at Sox camp this afternoon. Varitek participated in the conditioning run and drills for pitchers and catchers and appeared to be in solid condition. Also participating was 41 year old pitcher John Smoltz, who is entering his 22nd season in the major leagues. Because of shoulder surgery Smoltz is not scheduled to pitch until June so he is learning the art of “patience.” Smoltz has been labelled by Tiger Woods as the “best golfer I’ve seen outside of the PGA.” Smoltz said he plans on trying to make the Champions Tour when he turns 50 – which is in just over 8 years. His best round ever? 63!
