Sox Retire Rice's No. 14

By  | 

BOSTON (AP) - Jim Rice's No. 14 is up on the facade at Fenway Park along with the team's other Hall of Fame greats.

Rice was inducted into the Cooperstown, N.Y., shrine over the weekend, and on Tuesday night the Red Sox retired his number. Rice walked in from left field, where a giant "14" was mowed into the grass.

Rice played parts of 16 seasons for the Red Sox, batting .298 with 382 homers. His is the seventh number retired by the team, along with the No. 42 that was retired by the major leagues in honor of Jackie Robinson.
