Behind The Scenes

Go behind the scenes of an E:60 shoot with Red Sox legend Oil Can Boyd

Tonight at 7 ET on ESPN, Emmy Award-winning E:60 profiles former Boston Red Sox star pitcher Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd.

Buster Olney, senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and and analyst for Baseball Tonight, got Boyd to discuss his 10-year career in the majors, the majority of them in Boston.

Among other things, Boyd discusses his battles with cocaine and what happened the night he was told he wouldn’t start Game 7 of the 1986 World Series against the New York Mets. See an excerpt of the interview by clicking here.

In the video above, Front Row gains unique access to Olney’s mid-April sit-down with Boyd, shot in the McCoy Stadium locker room of the Pawtucket (R.I.) Red Sox, Boston’s Triple-A farm team.
