BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Youkilis recalled the happy moments and avoided commenting on his time playing under Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine in his return to Fenway Park on Monday.

Boston traded Youkilis on June 24, sending the three-time All-Star and cash to Chicago for utility player Brent Lillibridge and a minor league pitcher.

The 33-year-old Youkilis will be wearing the same No. 20 he had with Boston when he steps to the plate. He played 7 1/2 seasons with the Red Sox and was part of the 2004 and '07 championship teams.

In April, Valentine questioned Youkilis' commitment in his weekly television interview then apologized to him a day later.

Youkilis was a fan favorite during his time in Boston, often drawing loud chants of "Yoouk" for his hard-nosed play.
