It's a bracket-style tournament featuring 64 of the best players to ever wear a Boston uniform. Readers will vote for the players they want to see advance in each round.
We realize there’s a certain No. 9 who’s a pretty heavy favorite, but just like the NCAA tournament, the fun of this one will be the debate that matchups like Clemens vs. Dewey, Pedro vs. Pudge, and Yaz vs. Manny will create. The tournament’s supposed to be fun, but we also expect it to be highly competitive. Kind of like Red Sox fans.
Over the course of two weeks, the winners will be voted on by you, the fans. Sixty four players will be pared down to 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, and 1, with the winner being announced on Sept. 26.
We hope you’ll enjoy it, and check back Monday afternoon to see the matchups and vote in the first round.
