First Red Sox Alumni Game In 25 Years To Be Held May 27th At Fenway Park

The Red Sox have announced their first Alumni Game since 1993—to be held this May 27th at Fenway Park. The three-inning game will start that Sunday at 10:30 AM—before the 1:05 PM game against the Atlanta Braves. Fans with tickets to the afternoon game can also attend the alumni contest. The two Red Sox Alumni teams that will compete against one another include the following players: Wade Boggs, Oil Can Boyd, Orlando Cabrera, Scott Cooper, Jim Corsi, Lenny DiNardo, Alan Embree, Rich Garces, Jonny Gomes, Mike Greenwell, Sam Horn, Chris Howard, Bill Lee, Darren Lewis, Steve Lomasney, Derek Lowe, Mike Lowell, Julio Lugo, Steve Lyons, Keith MacWhorter, Pedro Martinez, Lou Merloni, Rick Miller, Mike Myers, and Troy O'Leary. The 1993 game featured Jim Lonborg, Jim Rice, and Carl Yastrzemski—playing a star-studded team that included the great Ernie Banks, Vida Blue, and Cesar Cedeno. Speaking for us—in addition to Boggsie, the biggest thrill of this year's Alumni game will be seeing El Guapo on the mound!
