  8. A Few Cool Things About Woodland

    Dustin Pedroia

    Dustin Pedroia, second basemen for the Boston Red Sox, and one-time Woodland resident was quoted in Boston Magazine with a few negative remarks about my home town. I don’t follow sports myself, but I’m told he is sort of a big deal in the baseball world, and people in town look up to him with pride ... well, that is until now.
