John Michael Pesky
Cause of Death Age Burial Location Visted
Unknown 93 Swampscott, Massachusetts November 2015

Johnny Pesky represented Boston baseball in
one capacity or another for 61 years. He is
buried in Swampscott, Massachusetts, outside
of the city where he was known as "Mr. Red

Pesky's last major public appearance was at
Fenway Park's 100th anniversary celebration
on April 20, 2012. His final visit to the ballpark
was during a game that August, eight days
before his passing.

Fenway Park's right field foul pole is nicknamed
the "Pesky Pole" after the shortstop supposedly
wrapped a home run around it in 1948. The
accuracy of this origin is disputed, but
nonetheless the pole and its moniker have
become a part of Red Sox lore.

As a Red Sox fan, I have visited the burial
sites of other former Boston players apart
from Pesky, including Dom DiMaggio, Joe
Cronin, and Jimmie Fox.
