Danny Vinik, the fan who helped the Red Sox beat the Angels in last Friday's game, waves to the crowd before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

BOSTON -- These Red Sox don't miss a trick.
Forget some old legend or civic leader. The Sox have chosen Danny Vinik to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Friday night. Vinik is the teen who snatched the foul ball out of Angels' catcher Jeff Mathis' mitt in last week's Game Two victory.
Vinik is the son of Jeff Vinik, a Red Sox limited parter and the former manager of Fidelity Investment's Magellan Fund.
