Sox Hero Foulke Is Now A Player Development Instructor

Foulke's Final Assist—2004 World Series
He made perhaps the most famous assist in Red Sox history on October 27, 2004. As Joe Castiglione put it, "Swing and a ground ball, stabbed by Foulke, he has it, he under-hands to first and the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions." No sweeter words were ever heard by The Nation. Now, this Spring, Keith Foulke begins a new role as a "player development consultant" for the team. He began today by working with minor leaguers. He joins a star-studded cast of Sox instructors, including: Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski, Pedro Martinez, and Jim Rice—not to mention Tim Wakefield, Dwight Evans, Luis Tiant and Jason Varitek.
