ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Boston Red Sox are retiring Jim Rice's No. 14 jersey.

The team said Wednesday it will honor Rice in a ceremony at Fenway Park on Tuesday, two days after Rice is inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame.

It will be the seventh number retired by the Red Sox.

Rice, an eight-time All-Star, batted .298 with 382 home runs and 1,451 RBIs in 2,089 games for the Red Sox from 1974 to 1989.

He was the American League MVP in 1978, when the Red Sox captain
hit .315 with 46 homers and 139 RBIs. He had 406 total bases, still the only time an AL player had 400 total bases since Joe DiMaggio
in 1937.
