Flavin says like most of us, he was surprized this year’s Red Sox team won the World Series…he figured them for no more than a .500 ball club.

Flavin is perhaps best known to baseball fans for his role in “The Teammates” a book by David Halberstam. In 2001, Favin drove Red Sox greats Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky, and Dom DiMaggio to Florida to see an ailing Ted Williams, for what turned out to be the final time. Williams died later that year.

Flavin’s ability to write poetry has made him a “regular” at special events at Fenway Park. He’s currently working as one of the Red Sox public address announcers.
