Clemens to be inducted into Red Sox Hall of Fame

Former Boston Red Sox players Roger Clemens, Nomar Garciaparra and Pedro Martinez have been selected as the 2014 Red Sox Hall of Fame inductees. Joe Castiglione, Red Sox radio broadcaster since 1983, has been chosen as the non-uniformed inductee.

The players were chosen by a 16-person panel, which includes club executives, media members and historians.

Clemens, a three time Cy Young Award winner and 1986 AL and All-Star MVP, spent 13 seasons with the club beginning in 1984. He is tied with Cy Young for the most career wins (192) and most career shutouts (38) as a Red Sox. Clemens is also the all-time franchise leader in strikeouts with 2,590.

Garciaparra, the 1997 AL Rookie of the Year, was an All-Star in five of his nine seasons with the Red Sox from 1996-2004. The shortstop has the fourth-best career batting average (.323) and fifth-best slugging percentage (.553) in team history. He led the AL with 209 hits and 684 at-bats in 1997, which included a 30-game hit streak.

Martinez was a two-time Cy Young Award winner and four-time All-Star in his seven seasons with the Red Sox from 1998-2004. He was a key part of the 2004 team that brought a World Series title to Boston for the first time since 1918. Martinez is the club’s all-time leader with a .760 (117-37) career winning percentage.

Castiglione has spent 31 seasons as the Red Sox play-by-play announcer. He has covered the entire careers of this year’s Hall of Fame selections.
