Red Sox pitcher Peavy buys duck boat after parade
Jake Peavy must have really enjoyed his ride in the Red Sox
World Series parade.
The Boston right-hander said on Twitter that he bought one of
the duck boats that carried the team through the streets of Boston
on Saturday to celebrate its championship.
”Wow what a special day!” he tweeted. ”Thank u all from the
bottom of my heart! & yes the boat is now mine & hopefully
in the family forever!(hash)BostonStrong”
The Red Sox later tweeted out a confirmation of the purchase
from their account, along with a picture of Peavy in front of the
green amphibious vehicle.
The half-boat, half-truck vehicles were originally designed for
the military but later adapted to take quacking visitors on tours
through Boston and onto the Charles River.
