Trumbull High School proud of Craig Breslow's newest role with Boston Red Sox
A Trumbull native is now on top of the baseball world in Boston.
People at Trumbull High School say Craig Breslow is the right fit.
Breslow is the new chief baseball officer for the Boston Red Sox.
"Craig Breslow, I've known since watching him play a little baseball in Little League opening day," said Trumbull High basketball coach Buddy Bray.
Bray has known Craig and his family for years.
"Very proud of him right now. So well deserved becoming baseball operations of the franchise," said Bray.
Bray was an assistant coach for Trumbull's 1998 state championship baseball team, and Breslow was the Captain.
"State championship game set the school record for 18 strikeouts," said Bray.
Breslow played baseball at Yale and studied molecular biophysics and biochemistry.
He started the Strike 3 Foundation, which raises money for childhood cancer, after his sister struggled with cancer.
"He wanted to go into medicine just because that stirred, hit a nerve with Craig," said Bray.
Breslow walked the halls at Trumbull High School just like thousands after him.
And his long journey paid off.
"I'm also a 13-year big leaguer and a 2013 Boston red Sox World Series champion and I know what it takes to win here and I'm willing to make the hard decisions necessary to deliver," said Breslow as he was introduced in Boston on Thursday.
"Being a diehard Yankees fan, I want to make sure that Craig has success as long as it's not during the series that they're playing the Yankees," said Bray.
Breslow is considered the smartest man in baseball.
The Red Sox are hoping that means another title in the future.
