    Thumbs up Bronx Brushoff -- Calhoun Heads Back To Fenway

    Bronx Brushoff
    Calhoun Heads Back To Fenway

    April 15, 2004
    By DAVID HEUSCHKEL, Courant Staff Writer

    ...The Yankees wanted Calhoun to throw out the first pitch at an upcoming game. But as a lifelong Red Sox fan who grew up in Braintree, Mass., the coach of the national champions didn't want anything to do with the Evil Empire.

    "No chance," Calhoun, 61, said Wednesday. "Sixty years of torment is enough."

    Calhoun was more than happy to accept the Red Sox's invitation to throw out the first pitch Monday before the Patriots Day game against the Yankees at Fenway Park. Emeka Okafor, the most outstanding player in the Final Four, is also expected to be on hand with the NCAA trophy.

    Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino said it was "very cool" that Calhoun turned down the Yankees.

    "We love Calhoun, Okafor and UConn," Lucchino said.

    According to sources, Calhoun said something to the effect of, it would be "over my dead body" the day he throws out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium.
