    When Was the Last Time The Red Sox Started Three Home Grown Players 24 or Younger?

    Can anybody search their memory banks for when the Red Sox started three regulars age 24 or younger in the starting lineup, let alone on opening day?

    2007: Ellsbury, Pedroia, ?

    Reports that WMB had a 102 temp for the game today too. Great game all around for every member of the team today.

    It's probably happened several times in the course of a season, especially after elimination from pennant consideration. But for opening day, it's probably pretty rare.

    I checked the two years I thought had the best chance:

    1975: Fred Lynn (23), Dwight Evans  (23), Rick Burleson (23).

    1988: Jeff Greenwell (24), Brady Anderson (24), Sam Horn (24).

    There were probably more, but those were the two I checked.

    So the follow up quesyion should be - when was the last time a team started 3 homegrown players age 24 and under on opening day and won anything?

    In 1975, RS had four in starting lineup under the age of 24.  LloydDobler already mentioned Lynn, Evans and Burleson.  Add Jim Ed Rice to the list as well!

    Foy and Smith actually both  started their careers in the Twins organization.  So are they considered "homegrown"?

    On opening day, probably back when they were the Boston Americans, circa 1899.



    They started play in 1901 and a large chunk of there roster was high paid stars from the NL that jumped leagues.

    Foy was signed as an amateur free agent by the Minnesota Twins in 1962, but was selected in that year's minor league draft by the Boston Red Sox.

    True, though Jim Ed didn't start the opener.

    A poster doesn't understand "circa".



    Circa doesn't entitle you to be wrong.
