Shane Victorino, The Flyin’ Hawaiian, Signs with the Boston Red Sox

ESPN is reporting that Shane "The Flyin' Hawaiian" Victorino, Native Hawaiian, has signed a contract with the Boston Red Sox. 

Victorino, who's currently on a snorkeling vacation in Hawaii, Tweeted: "Just agreed to join the Boston (at)RedSox in the middle of paradise, (hash)BLESSED!!! Can't wait to get to Boston!"

The Flyin' Hawaiian, a skilled free-agent outfielder, had been with the LA Dodgers, after having been traded to that club by the Philadelphia Phillies midseason. Although he had a down season, batting .255 with 11 homers and 55 RBIs, the Red Sox were aggressive and landed Victorino with a reported three-year, $39 million deal.  He will have to pass a physical, most likely just a formality.

Although the Flyin' Hawaiian is a natural center fielder, the Red Sox already have fellow Native player Jacoby Ellsbury, Navajo and a member of the Colorado River Tribe, in that position. It's likely that Victorino will take over in right field.

ICTMN will have further details on the transaction as they are released and confirmed.
