John Krasinki, Big Papi Treat Boston Healthcare Workers To Red Sox Surprise


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — On his internet show "Some Good News," actor John Krasinski gave some Boston healthcare workers, who are fighting COVID-19, a baseball surprise.

The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's COVID unit was surprised by Red Sox legal David Ortiz in a video chat.

"I got to tell you guys, from the very bottom of my heart, how much I love you and respect you for what you guys are doing," Ortiz told them.

Big Papi then announced that they would be giving the workers four free tickets for life.

The healthcare workers were then taken to Fenway Park by a duck boat. While on the field, they were thanked with a video featuring clips from the Red Sox team, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Gov. Charlie Baker and First Lady Lauren Baker, and Big Papi himself.

The COVID unit also got to throw out the "first pitch" of the baseball season while on the field.

Krasinski also announced that AT&T is giving three months of free wireless service to nurses and doctors battling COVID-19 on the frontlines through their nationwide network for first responders called FirstNet.
