Brock Holt Says Goodbye to Boston With Emotional Instagram Post

On his first day of Milwaukee Brewers’ spring training, Brock Holt shared just how difficult it was for him to move on from Boston.

The 31-year-old utility man told reporters Wednesday that he never expected to wear any other uniform than a Red Sox uniform. “I loved it there. I loved playing at Fenway, I love the fans, I love the city,” Holt said. “I was a huge part of the community. So, it was tough. It was tough for me to come to the fact that I wasn’t going back.”

Holt later send out an emotional Instagram post, featuring photos of his Red Sox tenure and time spent supporting the Jimmy Fund.

“Boston. You turned a Texas boy into one of your own,” Holt said. “It has been my absolute honor to play for your team and be a part of your city."

“Baseball is just that. Baseball. It doesn’t last forever. The relationships I’ve built will. I became a husband, a father, and a champion while playing for you. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has been a part of this chapter with us. And thank you for letting me be a part of yours. It was a damn good time!”

Holt spent seven years and won two championships with Boston before signing a 1-year deal with club option with Milwaukee. The Brewers are slated to come to Fenway Park on June 5th this season.
