Red Sox should retire Wade Boggs’s number

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — He spends his days as a high school baseball coach and he’s often away on African safari. Hall of Famer Wade Boggs has a full head of hair these days and occasionally the Tampa native makes his way to Tropicana Field for an autograph signing at the Ted Williams Museum.

Boggs, 54, spent 11 seasons with the Red Sox and entered the Hall of Fame in 2005 wearing a Red Sox cap, yet his No. 26 has not been retired by the team.
