BOSTON (AP) - Bobby Valentine is the 45th manager of the Boston Red Sox.
The 61-year-old former Rangers and Mets skipper was introduced Thursday during a news conference at Fenway Park.
Valentine takes over a team that blew a nine-game lead in the AL wild-card race to miss the playoffs for the second straight season.
General manager Ben Cherington praised Valentine's passion for the game and desire to win. Cherington says, "I'm very confident that we found the right person."
The Fenway lights were on, and the scoreboard welcomed Valentine to Boston.
