BOSTON, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy announced on Twitter he bought the duck tour boat he rode in during the team's World Series Championship parade.

Peavy and teammate Jon Lester rode in the boat when the victory parade traversed the streets and waterways of Boston Saturday, Boston.com reported.

"Wow what a special day! Thank u all from the bottom of my heart! & yes the boat is now mine & hopefully in the family forever!#BostonStrong," Peavy wrote on Twitter.

Peavy was acquired by Boston in the middle of the season in a three-team trade with the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers. He won four games in 10 starts for Boston and started three playoff games.
