Red Sox add Clemens, Garciaparra, Martinez, Castiglione to team’s Hall of Fame
Sox Hall adds four
Former Red Sox players Roger Clemens, Nomar Garciaparra and Pedro Martinez, along with radio broadcaster Joe Castiglione, were named as the 2014 Red Sox Hall of Fame inductees yesterday.
The players were chosen by a 16-person panel, which includes club executives, print and broadcast media members, booster club representatives and historians. Garciaparra was one of 15 position players under consideration; Clemens and Martinez were among 13 pitchers considered.
The panel also chose a “Great Red Sox Moment” – this year’s selection was Pedro Martinez’s one-hit, 17-strikeout complete-game win against the New York Yankees on Sept. 10, 1999. Martinez’s 17 strikeouts are the most ever by an opposing pitcher in Yankee Stadium.
More information on the Hall of Fame induction dinner to be held in August will announced at a later date.
