Red Sox by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Boston Red Sox by Uniform Number

Bill Nowlin (Author) Matthew Silverman (Author)


What do Rube Walberg, Mike Nagy, Kevin Millar, and Dustin Pedroia all have in common? They have all worn #15 for the Boston Red Sox. Since 1931, the Red Sox have issued 74 different numbers to more than 1,500 players.

In this newly updated edition, Red Sox by the Numbers tells the story of every Red Sox player since '31--from Bill Sweeney (the first Red Sox player to don #1) to J.T. Snow (#84, the highest-numbered non-coach in Sox history). Each chapter also features a fascinating sidebar that reveals obscure players who wore certain numbers and also which numbers produced the most wins, home runs, and stolen bases in club history.
