 BOSTON (AP) - New Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan visited Fenway Park for first time in his life Tuesday.
Hanrahan, a fan of baseball history, arranged a guided tour - complete with a contingent of media following close behind. He started with the home clubhouse, walked out to left field to see behind the wall where the manual scoreboard is operated, then scaled the wall to check out the view from the Green Monster seats.
``I thought, `This place is amazing,''' he said. ``A lot bigger than I thought it was. Obviously a ton of history here.''
And the Red Sox expect Hanrahan to add to it.
Boston, which acquired him in a trade with the Pirates in December, introduced him on Tuesday at the classic ballpark.
``It's a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be,'' Hanrahan said. ``Obviously, they've put some money into it over the years.''
Hanrahan, 31, went 5-2 with a 2.72 ERA and 36 saves last year in Pittsburgh.
