(WJAR) -- Lou Lucier pitched for the Boston Red Sox from 1943 to 1944.
The 95-year-old remembers his first day talking to first baseman Tony Lupien.
"Here I am, pitching for the Red Sox. I can't believe it. He says, 'You are, you really are. You're right on the mound,'" Lucier said.
Lucier remembers his first pitch.
"A strike and nobody's going to dispute that. No one will dispute it," he said.
Lucier said it's a memory he'll always cherish, playing for the Red Sox.
He remembers getting the call from then owner Tom Yawkey, and what you could call his signing bonus. It was a box full of cash.
"I was only making $25 a week then. And here's a guy handing me $1,000 and I said I want to thank you very much for it," Lucier said.
