    Pesky should be the one. He had been a very visible part of this team for many, MANY years until....hmmmmmm....

    he got old, and? I know MLB made some garbage rule about the number of non-players allowed on the bench, but the team didn't seem to do too much to support a guy who's been here longer than anyone.

    He'd be my first choice.

    Agree on Pesky since it is about the Park turning 100. Also thought having a Jimmy Fund benefactor such as a child cancer surviver would be fitting given the positive roll the Sox and Jimmy Fund have played in Boston.

    Who would you choose? Suggestions: Carl Yastrzemski Pedro Martinez Carlton Fisk Tim Wakefield Dave Roberts Curt Schilling Every available member of the 2004 Red Sox

    I think the Sox should invite JV and allow Damon to hit it into the rf seats much like he did in the 2004ALCS. You remember that series. The one when a team down 0-3 came back and humiliated the yankees by taking the next 4 for the first time ever in BB history. My second choice would be KB. Schilling, Pedro or Davey would be ok as well.

    Didn't MLB back down and made an exception for Pesky in the dugout? I thought they did, but I might be wrong. I can't remember.

    I'd say Pesky and Bobby Doerr if they're able. The DP combination of the 1946 team would be too cool. Yaz should be part of it too.

    The first pitch should be thrown by Luis Tiant. Ozzie should have a chat with Looie about perception of a certain leader.

    I was thinking the same thing. Doeer and Pesky are both in their 90s so they'd have to be contenders.

    George was a big supporter of the JF, to his credit, Babe. However,  Hank and Hal have not been. They may have other charities they chose to support.

    My choice also, dragon, Sox retired his number a few years ago, out of respect.  Also, the organization was told not to allow him in the dugout for years and did anyway. Only when the league came down on them hard, did the comply.

    Oldest Living Red Sox Puts Down High Paid Athletes

    Baseball is America’s favorite pastime. It’s a leisurely summer game played by young men and enjoyed by people of all ages.

    One of baseball’s most revered teams is the American League’s Boston Red Sox, founded in 1901. Futility plagued the Sox for 86-years from 1918 until the team’s World Championship in 2004.

    Great players, including Babe Ruth – before the historic trade to the Yankees – Ted Williams – the last player to hit over .400 average in a single season and Carl Yastrzemski, among others, have graced the ranks of the competitive Red Sox franchise.

    Japan’s Daisuke Matsuzaka joined the team in 2007 for the incredible sum of 50-million dollars.

    “That was the craziest thing I ever saw,” Lou Lucier, 94, the oldest living Red Sox, told Boston.com. Lucier came to the team in 1943 at the bargain basement price of $750 a month. “That was pretty good money,’’ he says. “I compared that with my father working in a Blackstone Valley cotton mill. He was making $19 a week.”

    The Sox let Lucier throw to Ted Williams whenever he was in from military service for batting practice.

    “He was a wonderful guy to me, always encouraging,” Lucier told Boston.com. “It’s something I’ll never forget. He wanted me to throw him curveballs. I made sure I didn’t hit him.”

    Lucier’s wife died seven years ago but his three children have given him five grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He still receives about a half-dozen monthly letters asking for autographs. He is an inspiration to people living in Massachusetts Assisted Living and Continuing Care residences.

    Jim where did you get that from. Whoever wrote the headline for that piece needs a lesson in headline writing. I never saw where he was putting down today's high-paid athletes.

    A great thread topic in theory and many good posts by Red Sox fans but one needs to do some weeding to find them.
