Red Sox President Larry Lucchino, Leader of 3 World Series Title Wins, Passes Away at 78

The former team president of the Boston Red Sox, Larry Lucchino, passed away at the age of 78 on Tuesday. He spent 14 years as the team president during their three World Series titles in 2004, 2007, and 2013.

Lucchino was known for his ability to assemble top talent within the organization and elevate the intense rivalry between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees, referring to them as the “Evil Empire.” He led efforts to update and modernize Fenway Park, adding seats on top of the iconic “Green Monster” wall and making various renovations to enhance the overall fan experience.

Before his time with the Red Sox, Lucchino served as a team president for both the Baltimore Orioles and later as a president and CEO of the San Diego Padres. He played a significant role in designing Oriole Park at Camden Yards and developing Petco Park in San Diego.

Lucchino’s legacy continues to shape the Red Sox today. During his tenure with Boston, he oversaw seven postseason appearances with Theo Epstein as general manager. His contributions to baseball will be missed dearly by fans across all teams he worked with.
