Red Sox to retire Wade Boggs’ No. 26 next May

#26 is also the number of beers Wade Boggs can consumer in a 30 minute ceremony.

The Red Sox announced this afternoon that they will retire Wade Boggs’ No. 26 number in a ceremony on May 26.
Boggs, who wears a Red Sox cap on his Baseball Hall of Fame plaque in Cooperstown, N.Y., will have his number placed on the right-field roof facade at Fenway Park in a May 26 (get it?) ceremony next year.
The Red Sox’ criterion for placing uniform numbers on the right field facade have shifted in recent years from a formerly strict requirement that players had to retire as a Red Sox and be in the Hall of Fame in order to be so honored.
Exceptions have been made, including Johnny Pesky and Pedro Martinez most recently.
