BOSTON -- John Carter was the one who took the call from the man who said he was Carl Beane's pastor.
"I don't know who I'm supposed to call," the pastor said.
"You found the right person," John Carter said.
John Carter's first day in the Red Sox control room was also Carl Beane's first day as the public address announcer. That was Opening Day 2003. The game was rained out. The friendship was just beginning.
