With recent news that Xander Bogaerts is willing to negotiate an extension during the season before hitting free agency, Red Sox fans are strongly showing their support for the star shorstop.
After a long rain delay when Bogaerts came up in the bottom of the 8th inning with a 3-3 tie against the Houston Astros the Fenway crowd began to chant “Re-sign Xander!” Bogaerts launched one into the Monster seats.
Bogaerts talked about the magical moment after the game.
“I heard it. If I struck out, it wouldn’t have helped my cause.”
