Eagle Scout delivers critical hit to win
second World Series

by Bryan Wendell

Shane Victorino already had Eagle Scout, 2008 World Series champion and three-time Gold Glove winner on his list of accomplishments.

Tonight, the Boston Red Sox outfielder added 2013 World Series champion to his résumé, and he did so with a timely swing of the bat in the bottom of the third. With the bases loaded and two outs, Victorino delivered a three-run double that gave the Red Sox a 3-0 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. (Watch an animated GIF of the hit here.)

“My parents always told me to take every moment, live every moment, love every moment,” he said in a post-game interview broadcast on FOX. “I just went up there and said, hey, I get another moment. … It’s time to shine, do what you can, and I was able to get in a good hitter’s count. I was able to put a ball off the wall and enjoyed every moment of it.”

Victorino’s hit provided all the runs the Red Sox needed to win the game, 6-1, and their eighth World Series championship.

It had to have been especially sweet for Victorino, who sat out Games 4 and 5 with lower back tightness, to come up big in a critical situation in Game 6. But then again, this Eagle Scout has been impressing people all his life.

Whichever Major League team you cheer for (if any), let’s all give a big round of applause to this member of the Scouting team.
