BOSTON (CBS) - Following the Boston Red Sox' 2-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, the team held a ceremony honoring the life of former Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky.

Fans who attended Sunday's game were in for a special treat, with the entire team in attendance along with past Red Sox greats like Pedro Martinez, Carlton Fisk and Roger Clemens.

Everyone on the field sat down for a round table discussion about Pesky, with each player telling their favorite Pesky story or memory. After, they each placed a rose on Pesky's number six on the infield and signed the famous Pesky's Pole in right field.

Pesky, who died August 13 at the age of 93, spent more than 60 years with the Red Sox organization.
