The Boston Red Sox are in mourning following the loss of their longtime executive, Larry Lucchino, who passed away at the age of 78. Lucchino, a former Princeton basketball player, had previously held similar roles with the Baltimore Orioles and the San Diego Padres. In 2001, he joined the Red Sox organization with the crucial task of assembling a team that could break the franchise’s 86-year World Series drought.

Remarkably, Lucchino achieved this feat in 2004, effectively ending the infamous curse. His leadership extended beyond that historic victory, as he guided the Red Sox to two more championships in 2007 and 2013. Additionally, Lucchino served as the chairman of the Worcester Red Sox, the team’s AAA affiliate.

In a statement released by his family, it was confirmed that Lucchino’s loved ones were by his side at the time of his passing.

“The Lucchino family wishes to thank his friends and caregivers who, over the past few months, have surrounded him with love, laughter, and happy memories.”

“To us, Larry was an exceptional person who combined a Hall of Fame life as a Major League Baseball executive with his passion for helping those people most in need.”

The family also mentioned Lucchino’s charitable efforts, mentioning his chairmanship of the Jimmy Fund, which supports cancer patients.

“He brought the same passion, tenacity, and probing intelligence to all his endeavors, and his achievements speak for themselves.”

He was 78 years old.

RIP
