Photos of the Day: Ted Kennedy Tosses First Pitch at Fenway
Lookin' snappy. Senator Ted Kennedy threw the ceremonial opening pitch at the Boston Red Sox season opener at Fenway Park today, accompanied by much jubilation in the crowd. The Red Sox went on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3. The Kennedy family has a long relationship with the Red Sox going back to Ted's grandfather, former Boston Mayor John F. “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald, who also served two terms in the U.S. House. Honey Fitz and a friend started the first Red Sox fan club, the Royal Rooters, in a Roxbury bar called The 3rd Base Saloon.
Teddy's lost weight. He looks good.
