Dougie's gone

Shed a tear, Shreveport.

The Boston Red Sox released Doug Mirabelli, a former Shreveport Captain, on Thursday.

Mirabelli leaves Boston with two World Series rings and the never-ending love of Red Sox fans. In fact, the worlds folk hero should be attached to Dougie's name.

Do a google search for "Dougie's Diary" to see how much larger than life the personal catcher for Tim Wakefield has become in Boston (Warning: Most of that is NOT intended for children.)

So another Shreveport tie to the big leagues is gone, which means another tear has fallen from area baseball fans' eyes.
