"This record is the fans’ record, and we want to salute the members of Red Sox Nation for reaching this extraordinary milestone. It’s a testament to the passion and dedication they have for the game, for the team, and for the ballpark. Every day, we work hard to ensure that we are worthy of their loyal support." -- John W. Henry, Red Sox owner
