Beltran and Red Sox Scout Share World Series Moment

Public-address announcer Henry Mahegan, the voice of Fenway Park, was recognizing the team’s scouts, player-development staff and Minor League coaches in between innings, and Beltran knew his childhood friend Edgar Perez was among those being applauded by the 38,000 fans.

Then, it happened.

“Carlos is looking up at us. I get to the side where he can see me, and he just gives me a wave and a nod,” said Perez, who has been a scout for 16 years. “It was a special moment. Here we are, two kids from little Manati, Puerto Rico, and we’re at the World Series together at the same time. I’ll never forget it.”

If Carlos really cares about his childhood friend he will do what he can to get him a ring.
