Ellsbury Hasn’t Thought About Fenway Return


The Yankees and Red Sox open a three-game series in Fenway Park on Tuesday night, and there is no shortage of juicy headlines if you’re a fan of such things. Masahiro Tanaka vs. Jon Lester, Derek Jeter‘s last first series of the year in Boston, and, of course, Jacoby Ellsbury‘s return to Fenway.

Obviously Ellsbury made a wise decision testing the market, but is he worried about the reaction when he returns to Fenway Park as a member of the rival Yankees?

“I haven’t really thought about it too much,” he said. “We’ll see what happens when the time comes. You can’t think about what they’re going to do. In this game, you can really only focus on what you can do, not worry about all that other stuff that you can’t control. We’ll see what happens. I gave the organization everything I had for a third of my life. Nine years in an organization, drafted by them, came up and won two World Series. I left it all on the field.”
