But that didn't stop a massive mob of Red Sox fans from trying to get closer to the five-time Super Bowl champion. The two-time NFL MVP made it safely into the stadium, as did owner Robert Kraft.
Brady wore his recovered Super Bowl 51 jersey to throw the game's first pitch. Before putting it on, he held it up in the air for the fans, only to have it stolen again by tight end Rob Gronkowski. Gronk could have still been feeling like a professional wrestler, after taking part in Sunday's WrestleMania. The All-Pro tight end ran around the infield before being tackled by Brady.
