BOSTON (AP)- Josh Reddick and Brandon Moss of the Oakland Athletics visited an 11-year old boy Monday who was injured a week ago in the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
Moss and Reddick, who both previously played for the Red Sox, are in town for the start of a three-game series Monday night against the Red Sox.
They spent time at Boston's Children's Hospital, visiting Aaron Hern, who is from the Oakland area, and had his left leg hit by shrapnel in the bombings.
Oakland manager Bob Melvin talked about how the two players were glad they went and were emotional from the visit.
