You’re getting ready for a day at Canobie, riding roller coasters and having a great time. You mindlessly throw on your Jason Varitek shirt before you leave, and head out for the day.
Now, when lunch time comes around, you stop somewhere in the park and grab a bite to eat. And then, all of the sudden, you feel a tap on your back…
Longtime Red Sox catcher and current coach Jason Varitek surprised this fan at the counter. The best part is that the fan wasn’t able to recognize the icon at first, probably because he wore a catcher’s mask for most of his career. However, when Jeff, the fan wearing Jason’s shirt, finally figured out who he was speaking with, a the two hugged. It was a fantastic moment.
That’s my brother-in-law Jeff. You guys made his day. He was still in shock when I saw him a few minutes later! ❤️— Bryon Stevens (@BPStevens25) August 16, 2022
They say you should never meet your heroes, but sometimes, it’s totally worth it!
