Sox New Players Part 1 Mike Cameron

This is Part 1 of my series on the Boston Red Sox’s big trades in the 2009-2010 off-season. On December 16, 2009, at 11:30 a.m. Mike Cameron signed a two-year contract with the Sox. As a teenager Cameron attended LaGrange High. In 1991 the White Sox drafted Mike straight out of high school, and he played on the White Sox for three years. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for Paul Konerko. He also played on the Seattle Mariners, the New York Mets, the San Diego Padres, and the Milwaukee Brewers. He is great with the glove and has acceptable power. On May 24, 2009, Cameron hit his 250th career home run against the Minnesota Twins, becoming the 20th player in the league to hit 250 home runs and steal 250 bases. In 2009 he hit twenty-four home runs, seventy RBI’s, and an average of .250. I am very excited to add Mike Cameron to our team. He will help us so much on defense; he and Jacoby Ellsbury are two of the best defensive players and we have both of them on the same team.
