BOSTON -- Jake Peavy must have really enjoyed his ride in the Boston Red Sox's World Series parade.
The right-hander said on Twitter that he bought one of the duck boats that carried the team through the streets of Boston on Saturday to celebrate its championship.
Wow what a special day! Thank u all from the bottom of my heart! & yes the boat is now mine & hopefully in the family forever!#BostonStrong— Jake Peavy (@JakePeavy_44) November 2, 2013
The Red Sox later tweeted out a confirmation of the purchase from their Twitter account, along with a picture of Peavy in front of the green amphibious vehicle.
So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is our Ducking City! http://t.co/EQqhwpiDcE— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) November 2, 2013
The half-boat, half-truck vehicles were originally designed for the military but later adapted to take quacking visitors on tours through Boston and onto the Charles River.
