  • Bostons retired numbers

    Why did it take so long for the Redsox to retire Ted Williams number? Also I noticed Joe Cronin had his number retired first. I assume that was due to scheduling because both numbers were retired in 1984.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

    Now i'm curious why Wade Boggs number isn't retired. Whats even more strange is that Scott Podsednik wears #26 now. Is there a grudge between the Redsox and Boggs?

      I know there were a lot of Red Sox fans that never forgave Boggs for signing with the Yankees.
