Red Sox Greats

Fred Lynn, center fielder, played for the Red Sox from 1974 to 1980. This nine- time All Star was the first player to have won both the MVP and Rookie of the Year awards in the same season in 1975. With notable mention, although not as prestigious as the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Lynn was inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2002. The popular shortstop, Nomar Garciaparra, played for the Red Sox from 1994- 2004. He was talented enough to put a stop to John Valentin's position as short in 1994. In his rookie year alone he had 30 home runs, batted in 98 runs, led the league in hits, and was second in extra-base hits. An early career speed of 95 miles per hour led Pedro Martinez, to win three Cy Young awards. Although his speed has since then slowed down he is still a pitcher with a myriad of professional and dominating techniques. Originally from the Dominican Republic, MartЁЄnez played for the Red Sox from 1998 to 2004 and is only one of ten Red Sox pitchers that have had 100 or more wins. There you have it - eleven reasons to celebrate the success of Boston;s best baseball heroes known as the all-time Red Sox Greats. Even if not everyone may be a Red Sox fan, there's no denying it; we all bleed red.
