One of Boston's favorites sons, Manny Delcarmen of West Roxbury, is still giving back to his home town despite being traded from the Red Sox to the CO Rox last summer. Manny was a key part of the 2007 World Series winning Red Sox team when he pitched 44 innings, allowing only 28 hits and 10 earned runs which gave him a 2.05 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. Unfortunately, his performances since then continued on a downward spiral and earned him a trade to the Rockies at the end of August last season. The Rockies non-tendered Manny earlier this month, but are still interested in him.
Manny donated $15,000 that was raised at the “Bowlin’ Strikes for Schools presented by New Balance” bowling tournament. This is the 4th year that Manny has donated proceeds from the bowling tournament to Boston Public Schools.
