FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) _ There will be no drinking in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse this season. The team will ban alcohol in the clubhouse and on the last plane flight of road trips, new manager Bobby Valentine announced.
The move comes in the wake of last season’s September collapse in the AL East, a tailspin that included reports of Boston starting pitchers drinking beer in the clubhouse on their off-days rather than supporting their teammates
in the dugout.
