BOSTON – Before making a single decision in the dugout, Alex Cora has already made a huge impact as Red Sox manager.

Cora was the central figure of a massive relief effort Tuesday to his homeland of Puerto Rico. Cora led Red Sox players and executives to the country devastated by last year's Hurricane Maria, with a big assist from JetBlue, and City of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, bringing one of several JetBlue cargo freights to the island delivering nearly 10 tons of supplies to aid Hurricane Maria recovery efforts.

"Not to be selfish but I've been looking forward to this day even more than Opening Day," Cora said of the relief trip to the Caribbean.

The group, which included Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy, and Red Sox Assistant General Manager Eddie Romero, delivered a JetBlue plane filled with essentials such as medical supplies and vaccines, water filtration systems, first aid kits, flashlights, diapers, and food for distribution to areas in need throughout the island.
