While the Red Sox were trying to finish off a trade mere minutes before MLB began its lockout in December, the player who they were trading for – Jackie Bradley Jr. – was enjoying himself at a wedding.

“So here’s the real story,” Bradley said. “I actually come out of the wedding. So it’s during the reception now. It was [Mookie Betts’s] wedding actually.
“We weren’t allowed to have our phones. So there was a special, designated area to where you could have your phone. So I just happened to come out and call my wife.
