Former Sox pitcher Dennis Lamp now serves fish in Southern California

Former Red Sox relief pitcher Dennis Lamp now lives in Southern California, but he isn’t just another retired major leaguer spending his days lazing in the sun. Instead, Lamp works the seafood counter at a Bristol Farms supermarket in Newport Beach.
According to an article in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times, it isn’t a publicity stunt and Lamp doesn’t need the money.
“I just enjoy working,” Lamp told the newspaper.
Lamp, who’s been serving fish for seven years now, pitched for the Red Sox from 1988 to 1991, going 20-16 with a 3.76 ERA in 186 appearances out of the bullpen. He pitched 16 seasons in total from 1977 to 1992, posting a 96-96 record and 3.93 ERA. He also suited up for the Cubs, White Sox, Blue Jays, Athletics and Pirates.
