Jake Peavy Bought Duck Boat After Red Sox Victory Parade Through Boston (PHOTOS)


Jake Peavy loved his trip aboard a duck boat during the Red Sox "rolling rally" through Boston on Saturday that he bought himself one of the amphibious vehicles. The Red Sox official Twitter account first reported that the 32-year-old right-handed pitcher had purchased one of the WWII-style landing vehicles that the team used during its victory parade that traveled through the streets of Boston as well as in the Charles River.

So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is our Ducking City!

A short while later, both Peavy and Boston Duck Tours confirmed the big purchase.

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
