A's Reddick, Moss visit bomb victim in hospitalMoss and Reddick, who both previously played for the Red Sox, are in town for the start of a three-game series Monday night against the Red Sox. "It was awesome," Reddick said after a 9-6 loss to the Red Sox. They spent time at Boston's Children's Hospital, visiting Aaron Hern, who is from the Oakland, Calif., area and had his left leg hit by shrapnel in the bombings. "He said that he was very glad and it was a very touching moment, and that the perspective that you get when you're there talking to someone that's been involved - as opposed to coming out here and losing a baseball game, it's pretty insignificant - they were glad to do it and they're probably better for it, too."
