List Of Former Red Sox Players Who Attended Fenway Park Ceremony

By way of Peter Abraham, here is the official list of Red Sox players who attended the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park.

Names that aren't on the list: Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs, and Curt Schilling. This is ostensibly because they had more pressing commitments -- it's not like a baseball park's birthday is the professional equivalent of your daughter's wedding, or something -- but it was still surprising to see those names omitted. These players did show up, though:

  • Wayne Gomes
  • Scott Bankhead
  • Billy Jo Robidoux
  • Carmen Fanzone
  • Mike Burns
  • Calvin Pickering
  • Kevin Jarvis

Because when you think Red Sox ...

But it was actually pretty cool to see guys like that, who played parts of just one season with the Red Sox, think it was important/interesting enough to go back to Fenway one last time. Several of the ex-players were holding up camera phones, recording the moment that they stepped back on the Fenway field for what was likely the last time.

And it was especially cool to see guys like Sam Horn, Rico Petrocelli, and Rich Gedman get their due -- guys who are very much a part of Red Sox history, but who don't get the same attention that Hall of Famers like Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice, or Carl Yastrzemski do.
