Sleep Walking Sox

Red Sox sleep bed

Postseason Clinch Is Suddenly Not a Cinch
Not-Well-Rested Sox Need a 'Sleep Room' Power Nap Today

Red Sox president Larry Lucchino on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan: "One of things we did this season, it sounds like a little thing but I'll mention it anyway, we created a sleep room in the clubhouse. I think the players have made terrific use of it. It's a sound-proof room where guys can come in and get some rest, take a nap during the afternoon. Guys are around the ballpark from about 11 or 12:00 even for a 7:10 game and I think the little gestures, well they're more than gestures... it was actually an idea that came from our sleep doctor. We have a sleep specialist to study the problems confronting baseball players with the travel and the jet lag they have and found that a tremendous number of our baseball players are sleep deprived... it's nothing too glamorous, it's just a room with a couple of bunk beds but it's sound proof and it's just off the second floor of the clubhouse and it's a place where people can grab some rest if they need it during the day. A couple of our players have talked about how they've been able to get some of the best sleep they've had in weeks when they are able to do so."
