FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Jason Varitek is back in camp with the Boston Red Sox.
Whether he's working with catchers or taking in some information about the inner workings of an organization, the former Boston captain seems at peace with his decision to walk away during spring training last year.
Varitek spent his whole big league career with the Red Sox, winning over the Boston fans with an unyielding work ethic. He caught four no-hitters, made three All-Star teams and won two World Series titles.
He was 39 when he retired, leaving behind a legacy that made him an ideal candidate to come to camp and work with younger players.
