» Why Is Kenny Cheering For The Red Sox?
Kenny Chesney didn’t grow up in Boston, but his allegiance as a baseball fan is to Bean Town’s major league team the Red Sox. Kenny was raised in eastern Tennessee, and his love for the Red Sox came from the childhood he had there.
Kenny told ESPN, “I didn’t grow up in the Northeast or New England at all. But when I was a kid, growing up we didn’t have cable, so I spent my Saturdays, the only access to baseball I had was ‘This Week in Baseball’ and I looked forward to that as a kid. The only games they had on Saturdays always seemed like the Red Sox or Cincinnati Reds. I loved those two teams growing up.
Even playing Little League I wanted to be on either the Reds or the Sox as a kid, so that’s where it started.”
