4/21/2012. Marlon Byrd traded to the Red Sox. Lots of respect for this hard-nosed ballplayer. Gets beaned in the face with a ball and the game he comes back, crowds the plate like he always does and takes out an infielder on a double play. A throwback kinda player that will be missed by me and many other Cubs fans.
