Lucchino ’71, Red Sox Bring Second World Series Trophy to Law School
The Boston Red Sox visited Yale Law School on Friday, January 11, to show off both the 2007 World Series trophy and the trophy they won in 2004. Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino ’71 thanked members of the Red Sox Nation-Yale Law School Chapter, as well as other fans in attendance, for their continued avid support of the team.
Joining Lucchino were Red Sox and former Yale pitcher Craig Breslow Yale ’02, team mascot Wally the Green Monster, and Bharat Ramamurti ’07.
Breslow, a New Haven native with a degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale, captained the Yale baseball team and as a junior, led the Bulldogs in victories and ERA.
Ramamurti, a 2007 graduate of Yale Law School and currently an associate at WilmerHale, told the cheering rally how he had started working as an intern in the Red Sox front office days after taking the Massachusetts Bar Examination and ended up riding on the "Duck Boat" down the Charles River celebrating the 2007 World Series Championship.
Said Dean Harold Hongju Koh, “From Larry Lucchino to Theo Epstein, from Bart Giamatti to Craig Breslow, from Bharat Ramamurti to seven-decade YLS fans Denny Curtis and John Herpok, Yale and its law school have contributed many wonderful citizens to Red Sox Nation. We are so grateful to Larry and the Red Sox for making a special stop on their Connecticut tour to bring not one, but two World Championship trophies to our Dining Hall. Until recently, you would have had to wait 87 years to have a comparable experience!”
The Red Sox swept the Colorado Rockies in October to capture the World Series title, the team’s second in four years and seventh overall.
