The Boston Red Sox are going to be putting both David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez in the teams Hall of Fame in 2020. They will be joined by former GM Dan Duquette and the late Bill Dinneen and former catcher Rich Gedman.
RedSox Hall of Fame class: Dan Duquette, Rich Gedman, David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, and the late Bill Dinneen.
We know about Ortiz, who is one of the most accomplished players in Red Sox history. Over 14 years in Boston, he hit 483 homers (541 total) and had more than 2,000 career hits, and he hit .290 in his Sox career. He also helped the team win three World Series (2004, 2007 and 2013).
Ramirez is a more controversial figure given his history with steroid use and his messy exit from Boston.
But with the Sox in an eight-year span, he helped the team win two titles and hit 274 career homers. He made it to eight all-star games, won a batting title and led the league in on-base percentage three times.
As for Duquette?
Drafted Nomar, traded for Pedro and signed Manny. GOAT. https://t.co/gyzJsdxodx
Dinneen spent six years with the Red Sox (1902-1907). He went 85-85 as a pitcher with a 2.81 ERA.
