Red Sox Set To Retire Rice's 14

Jim Rice's number 14 will be retired on Tuesday night in a pregame ceremony before the Red Sox take on the A's. Red Sox owner John Henry made this announcement:

"As a fan of the game and a steward of this great franchise, it is an honor to be a part of the Red Sox during this special moment in the team's history. On behalf of our partners and the entire organization, we want to congratulate Jim Rice on his upcoming induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and finally taking his rightful place among the greatest players in the game.

The retirement of his number will be a fitting way to honor one of the most dominant hitters to ever wear a Red Sox uniform."
