Red Sox’s John Farrell Reflects Father’s Influence

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell’ father, Thomas, played in the Cleveland Indians organization during 1953-1955, after a bright amateur career as a pitcher. However, he never made it past the low-levels of the minor leagues.

Thomas, who was later a fisherman and business agent for a local union in New Jersey, taught his son some valuable life lessons.

The Farrells are a three-generation baseball family, as John’s three sons have been involved in professional baseball as well.
