Why Steve Pearce’s heroics meant something more to his Boston sports-loving family | WEEI

Considering how the Red Sox had been infused in the Pearce family for more than 50 years, witnessing Pearce serve as the offensive hero for the newly-crowned World Series champs was the kind of punctuation few could have ever imagined. And the disbelief didn’t end with the family’s patriarch.

In among the Pearce family’s on-field celebration was Steve Jr.‘s younger brother, Chad. One look at his wallet allowed for a glimpse into the family’s passion for Boston sports, with “Patriots” imprinted into the leather. Oh, and then there was his young son, who he named “Brady” but called “Tommy.” You can probably guess why.

The Boston sports fanaticism had clearly been passed down.
