Wade Boggs to visit LeLacheur June 2006/12/2009 12:37 PM ET
Baseball Hall of Famer and Red Sox legend Wade Boggs is scheduled to make a visit to LeLacheur Park, Saturday, June 20 from our friends at Merrimack Valley Distributors to serve as a celebrity bartender!
Boggs will be on hand for the first hour after gates open pouring his favorite, Miller Lite, at the newly renovated Miller Hut on the first base concourse.
The event is brought to Spinners fans by our friends at Merrimack Valley Distributors, the exclusive provider of beer to LeLacheur Park.
A left-handed hitter, Boggs won five batting titles starting in 1983. He also batted .349 in his rookie year which would have won the batting title, but was 121 plate appearances short of the required minimum of 502. From 1982 to 1988, Boggs hit below .349 only once, hitting .325 in 1984. From 1983 to 1989, Boggs rattled off seven consecutive seasons in which he collected 200 or more hits, an American League record for consecutive 200-hit seasons that was later matched by Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki. Boggs also had six seasons with 200 or more hits, 100+ runs and 40+ doubles. Although he would not win another batting title after 1988 (his batting title that year broke Bill Madlock's Major League record of four by a third baseman), he regularly appeared among the league leaders in hitting.
While Boggs finished his career with the Tampa Bay Rays, and spent time in a place that shall not be named during the interim, he will forever be enshrined in Cooperstown as a member of the Boston Red Sox.
Standing Room tickets are available for this sold out game by contacting the Spinners Box Office at 978-459-1702, and a limited number of seats may become available the day of the game. In any event, tickets will always be available to get into the park.
