It could be called the first summer pool party at the home of Mike and Julie Owens, but Monday's big splash wasn't planned. It was spontaneous. Most certainly, it was joyous. It happened shortly after their son, Edison pitching sensation Henry Owens, realized a childhood dream early that evening when he was selected by the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball's 2011 First-Year Player Draft. What began with high anticipation that day at the Owens home turned into unbridled jubilation after former Red Sox great Jim Rice made the announcement on the MLB Network that the Edison ace was Boston's first-round choice.
