Hall makes the call -- Boggs to wear Red Sox cap on plaque
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -- Wade Boggs will have a Boston Red Sox cap on his Hall of Fame plaque.
Boggs, elected to the Hall this week along with Ryne Sandberg, spent the first 11 seasons of his career with Boston, winning five American League batting titles. He played with the New York Yankees from 1993-97, then finished with two seasons for his hometown Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
The Hall picks which cap will appear on a player's bronze plaque. Boggs told the Hall he didn't care which team was selected.
"The logo selection is based on where that player makes his most indelible mark," Hall president Dale Petroskey said Friday.
