Back in April, Mike Lowell announced that he'd probably be hanging it up after the 2010 season. Next Saturday, the Red Sox plan to see he gets a proper farewell.â†µ
The team announced on Thursday that before the game on Oct. 2, they will honor Lowell with a tribute at Fenway Park dubbed "Thanks, Mike Night."â†µ
Pregame ceremonies will start 30 minutes prior to game time, which is to be determined. It will be a special night for Lowell, who, even before the tribute was announced, had arranged for his entire family to be in Boston for his final weekend.â†µ
Additionally, fans are able to leave notes, thanking Lowell, at his "official thank you page."
