Just like last year, Jason Varitek has asked us to make some custom gear for various holidays.  On Tuesday he was sporting some fancy Kelley green and white duds in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.  The gear was a nice compliment to the white and green uniforms and green ball caps worn by all the Sox players.

Just like last year, each set of gear is being auctioned off to benefit a different charity.  The proceeds from the St. Patrick’s Day gear will be supporting Children’s Hospital in Boston.

To place your bid, visit the official Red Sox auction site.

Here is a close up shot I took of the embroidery on the throat guard before shipping the gear to Tek last week.


Oh yeah, and Tek cranked a homer (and that’s not just the luck of the Irish).

Jose Morales and Mike Redmond of the Twins were both looking sharp in their All-Star gear, albeit not quite as festive as Tek’s.
