Jack Barry was a winner for his entire life. He won with Holy Cross as a player. He won with the Athletics. He won with the Red Sox. He won as a player/manager. He won when he returned to Holy Cross as a coach.

Yesterday, the Red Sox bounced back from a rough first inning by Clay Buchholz and today Josh Beckett looks to continue his revival.

The guess here is Josh Beckett will look to his inner Jack Barry and give the Sox another win.

Did you know? Jack Barry was the head coach at Holy Cross for four decades!
