    No one should be wearing Number 25 EVER on the Sox! Bobby V should be ashamed of himself!

    Agree with carnie, Tony.

    I do.

    I remember  Tony C. Not a hall of famer, but certainly due some respect as a fan favorite and in 1965 was the youngest player to lead the league in home runs.

    True, he only hit 32 that year, but that was a real dead ball era!  And he was the youngest AL player to have reached 100 home runs.

    Sad end, too.

    Yeah, it surprised me, too, that Bobby V took that number. And no one told him about its signficiance.

    So much for institutional memory.

      Should Mark Clear, Don Baylor and Jeff Russell be ashamed of themselves, too?

    In Response to Re: RedSox Org direspecting Tony Conigliaro!! : you are so wrong.  bobby v played with tony c in 1976 when they were both members of the san diego padres. they formed a friendship and bobby wears the number to honor his friend. it's amazing what you can find on GOOGLE. you should try it sometime.

     Tony C. never played for the Pads. He met his pro demise when rookie phenoms Lynn and Rice necessitated Tony C. getting released in 1975.

    "I know 25 is really Tony C's number," said Valentine. "I might have been his last roommate, and I think I was. He was trying to make a little comeback when I was with the Padres and I had such admiration for him."

    from ESPN back when Valentine was hired.

    Must have been in Spring training, but I never heard of it. Or a regular season tryout that didn't amount to anything. Gives me something to research.....

    As far as I can find out, Tony C never played for the Padres at anytime!  He played one season with the Angels (1971).  He did not play at all from 72 thru 74 (neither majors nor minors).  Went to spring training with the Sox in 75 and started the season with Pawtucket, called up to the Sox after appearing in 36 games for the PawSox, he appeared in 27 games for the Sox before his release in September.  It appears that Valentine was right to say -  "I might have been his last roommate, and I think I was."  As it turns out, nothing I have seen indicates that Tony C tried out with, or played for, the Padres at any time.

    In a way Tony C gave his life that day... he went through a lot every day thereafter and died much too young. In fact had good fortune prevailed he may have been retiring in 1986 after hitting a game winning Game 7 WS homer.

     Much ado about nada. Sox fans are always looking for something to gripe about. I am in that same group, but can't get riled up about BV wearing 25. We have more to worry about.
