Meet Me at Red
Date: January 15, 2010
In January 2010, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and the City of Boston dedicated a new platform at North Station to Celtics legend Red Auerbach. To commemorate the occasion, a large bronze plaque featured Auerbach along with a number of his accomplishments. Next to the commemoration, a smaller plaque of a shamrock encouraged passersby to “touch for luck.” Auerbach’s daughter Nancy Auerbach Collins attended the unveiling along with Coach Doc Rivers, captain Paul Pierce and Celtics greats like Jo Jo White, Satch Sanders and Tommy Heinsohn.
