"He was a curse-breaker, ballpark-preserver & community champion. Thank you, Larry."

Lucchino was a D.C. lawyer and worked with the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Orioles as the firm he worked at, Williams & Connolly, had an ownership stake in both of those teams. He served on the Redskins’ board of directors from 1979 to 1985 and was the president of the Baltimore Orioles from 1988 to 1993.

After his time with the Orioles, Lucchino was the president and CEO of the San Diego Padres from 1995 to 2001. The Padres made a World Series when he was an executive for the team.

Lucchino’s biggest claim to fame was revamping the Red Sox organization from the lovable No. 2 of the American League, always the bridesmaid and never the bride behind the New York Yankees, into a curse-breaking behemoth that went on to win titles in 2004, 2007 and 2013.

Before that, the Red Sox hadn't won a World Series since 1918.
