Victorino at the Grammys

What are you nominated for?

“Best Hawaiian vocals,” he joked recently, sitting in front of his locker at Bright House Field.

Victorino spent one of his last free weekends before Spring Training at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, thanks to friend Gary Veloric, a Bryn Mawr resident who owns a music company called Red Stripe Plane. Veloric was on the Board of Directors for MusiCares, which honored Neil Diamond the night before the Grammys.

“Neil Diamond was unbelievable,” Victorino said.

Fan of Neil?

“I’m not a fan, but I know his music,” he said. “Sweet Caroline was the last song of the night. I was like, ‘Oh, Boston, seventh-inning stretch. Here we go.’ That’s what I thought in my head.”

The next night was the Grammys.

“When I walked on the red carpet I was like, ‘Let me just go,’ because I felt so out of place there,” Victorino said. “But it was definitely a neat experience. I sat there and watched and it’s amazing what kind of talent it takes to do what they do. I’ve played at the pinnacle of my sport, and they’re playing at their pinnacle – the Grammys. It’s like the top. To be able to watch them perform, it was very cool. Steve Wonder was great. Carrie Underwood. She was pretty impressive.”

And the tux?

“Got a lot of compliments,” he said. “People liked it.”
