Jason Varitek May Take Instructing Role With Red Sox In Retirement

Jason Varitek may be hanging up his catcher’s mask on Thursday, but he probably will not be saying goodbye to the Boston Red Sox family.

Both WCVB’s Mike Lynch and Comcast SportsNet’s Maureen Mullen are reporting that Varitek will take a position within the team. Lynch is reporting that the former catcher may start out as a traveling minor league instructor. Varitek could jump to a minor league mangerial role as soon as next season.

Red Sox fans took to Twitter to express their hope that Varitek won’t go too far in retirement. A Twitter user named, “MaineLawyer” summed up the thoughts of many when he tweeted, “It’s the right time, but I hope Red Sox offer him a coaching position in the organization.”
