If there's one thing I've learned all these years of following the Sox, it's that you never see the last of Willie Harris.
I know there is one WSIer crying her eyes out right now......(old timers know who I am referring to).

Willie Harris is popular with young female fans wherever he goes. When I moved to Washington DC in 2010, I found that many female Nationals fans also fondly recall "Wee Willie" from his time as an outfielder there.

I have a female friend who is a season ticket holder for the Nats who still counts Willie Harris as one of her favorite Nats players.

Not sure how effective he'll be, but nice to have someone with his resume back in the organization.

It would be nice if he could help Jake Burger, whose fielding and throwing isn’t bad, but is awkward.
