They say that “timing is everything!” It also helps when the right person sees your Red Sox sign to make your birthday wish come true!

According to, Alex Cora spotted a Red Sox fan in the stands during batting practice at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City before Tuesday’s Red Sox/Royals game with a sign that said, “I’m here for my b-day but what I really want is to meet Mookie!!” As the Boston Red Sox’s tweet says, “Birthday wish… GRANTED!”  Alex Cora brought the birthday boy down to the field to meet Mookie! I love these guys!
