Now 30, the man who helped inspire the Ice Bucket Challenge is stricken wi
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Clay Buchholz started with one perfect inning and Boston Red Sox pitchers dominated the rest of the day in sweeping a pair of college teams, beating Northeastern 2-1 and edging Boston College 1-0 Tuesday.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Boston Red Sox outfielders Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo each stand shorter than 5-feet-10 and between them have played in only 62 big league games.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Big Papi arrived at spring training with a weighty quip about new teammate Pablo Sandoval.

Ortiz, the final player on the 40-man roster to report, wore black-framed glasses and was dressed in a black T-shirt wi
