PawSox vets were key to Boston’s A.L. East flag

September 23, 2013

BOSTON – Gary DiSarcina and Rich Sauveur thought they were positioned well out of harm’s way.

But what soon followed was a moment that could very well summarize the impact that DiSarcina, Sauveur and the rest of the 2013 PawSox had on the newly minted American League East champs.
