Red Sox Induct Five Into Team Hall Of Fame

Zimmer among 5 added to Red Sox Hall of Fame

BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame has five new

members.

Tommy Harper, Jimmy Piersall, John Valentin, Don Zimmer and

Eddie Kasko were enshrined on Friday afternoon. Then the surviving

members were introduced in a ceremony before the Red Sox played the

Toronto Blue Jays.

Joining them was Tom Brunansky, whose catch to end the 1990

regular season and give the Red Sox the AL East title was

recognized as a “Memorable Moment.”

Red Sox manager Terry Francona lingered to give Zimmer a big hug

on the field. Francona said before the game that his father got his

break in the majors when Piersall needed a day off with the 1959

Cleveland Indians.
