Movement to honor the life of the late Red Sox fan
Yesterday I reported about the psycho Yankees fan who mowed down a Red Sox fan with her car after they got into an argument at a bar.
Well people joke around and people talk trash between the teams but this is actually someones life who was lost behind this insanity.
Anyway, there is an online petition to honor the memory of Matthew Beaudoin, 29, who was ran down by the crazy Yankees fan. More details can be found here.
To: The Boston Red Sox While some of the details of the death of Matthew Beaudoin remain foggy in the public sphere, we believe he deserves special recognition as both a baseball fan and person.
Beaudoin, 29, of Nashua, N.H., was struck by a vehicle early Friday, May 2, operated by 43-year-old Ivonne Hernandez, also of Nashua, according to articles in the Manchester Union Leader, the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, among other publications.
Family and friends have indicated the incident occurred after an argument in a bar and a subsequent altercation in a parking lot in which “words were exchanged between Hernandez and the group about the Yankees and the Red Sox,” according to the Union Leader. Hernandez was arraigned Monday, May 5, on a second-degree murder charge, and also faces felony charges of reckless conduct and aggravated driving while intoxicated, according to the newspaper reports.
While how much the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry played a role in Beaudoin’s death remains in question, witnesses have said that another woman struck by the vehicle, Maria Hughes, 21, suffered only minor injuries in part because Beaudoin shielded her from Hernandez’s vehicle, according to the Boston Globe.
Given Beaudoin’s rooting for the Boston Red Sox and his apparent heroic actions before death, we ask that the Red Sox consider honoring Beaudoin’s memory with — at the very least — a day in his honor. It seems like a fitting, honorable tribute, and one that would give Beoudoin’s fellow Red Sox fans and baseball fans in general a chance to mourn one of their own.
I encourage everyone to participate in this regardless of what side you are on (I absolutely hate the Red Sox and this doesn’t change that). Here is the link directly to the petition.
