Adam Duvall #18 of the Boston Red Sox reacts after hitting a walk off home run during the ninth inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park on April 01, 2023 in Boston

So, opening day at Fenway Park wasn’t what we hoped for. Despite a valiant comeback late in the game, it was a disappointing loss, to say the least. But if you stuck with the boys in the red stockings through the weekend, you would seen some heroics. Late in the game on Saturday and there were triumphs over turmoil, as the Sox fought hard and got lucky. On Sunday, the bats were alive earlier and more often, as Boston took the series over Baltimore. But it was the bat of a newly aquired team member that had everyone asking, or googling, Who is Adam Duvall? Fun facts about the new, red hot, Red Sox player are found below.

Adam Duvall didn’t have a great opening day with his new team, then again, no Red Sox player did. But on day 2, game 2, it was a different story. The outfielder went 4 for 5 with a walk-off home run. On Sunday, Duvall’s bat stayed hot. He had 3 hits, which included 2 doubles and his 2 run single broke a tie in the 5th inning. Here’s to hoping the bat stays hot, and Adam continues to shine in Boston and with the fans.
