BoSox P Peavy buys duck boat after parade
November 2, 2013
BOSTON (AP) - Jake Peavy must have really enjoyed his ride in the Red Sox World Series parade.
The Boston right-hander said on Twitter that he bought one of the duck boats that carried the team through the streets of Boston on Saturday to celebrate its championship.
''Wow what a special day!'' he tweeted. ''Thank u all from the bottom of my heart! & yes the boat is now mine & hopefully in the family forever!(hash)BostonStrong''
The Red Sox later tweeted out a confirmation of the purchase from their account, along with a picture of Peavy in front of the green amphibious vehicle.
The half-boat, half-truck vehicles were originally designed for the military but later adapted to take quacking visitors on tours through Boston and onto the Charles River.
