Milton Native Alex Hassan Collects First Major League Hit
" BOSTON (CBS) — Milton native Alex Hassan lived one of his lifelong dreams over the weekend, playing for his hometown Boston Red Sox.

Hassan, a 20th-round pick by the Red Sox in 2009 after solid careers at BC High and Duke University, was called up Friday night when first baseman Ryan Lavarnway was placed on the disabled list. He watched Boston take the first two of a three-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays, but made his major league debut in Sunday’s 4-0 victory.

“It was a lot of fun,” the 26-year-old said from the Boston locker room Sunday afternoon. “I thought the team played really well and it’s something I’ll never forget.”
