  • Boo Ferriss, Russ Nixon and Juan Bell, former Red Sox players, pass away

    For a couple years, Boo Ferriss was a superstar. He began his career going 21-10 with a 2.96 ERA for the 1945 Red Sox, then went 25-6 with a 3.25 mark the next year. He never again replicated that success, but is fondly remembered for his two great campaigns. He died November 24 at 94.
