The top 100 Boston Red Sox of all time


Managed to get myself involved in a great little project. It's called -
Top 100 Red Sox of All Time: A Sox Blogs Project

Basically, 'it does what it says on the tin', several Sox bloggers got together and spent a while selecting their top 100 of all time to wear a Boston uniform.

Starting February 6th, through the end of Spring Training, contributing authors will be posting biographies of the Top 100 Red Sox of all time at their own blogs and here at Top 100 Red Sox of all time

The countdown will begin with #100 and build all the way to the best player to ever put on a Red Sox uniform.

This from one of the groups creators;

''As a group, we've combed through history to rank the 100 players based on their career performance in a Red Sox uniform. Statistics achieved for other teams were not factored into this analysis. We wanted to find the greatest Red Sox player of all time more than we wanted to find the best player to wear the Red Sox colors.''

Personally, my task is to write bios on the following fellas;
John Valentin, Tony Conigliaro, Jim Lonborg, Keith Foulke and possibly a couple more along the way

I think it's a great little project, and I am delighted to be on board. If you are a Sox fan take a few minutes to check it out!

Gentleman Jim was my childhood dentist and little league coach, if you'd like any anecdotes about his life after his pitching career.
