Jim Rice's #14 will be retired by the Red Sox before next Tuesday's game against the Athletics.
Rice will be inducted to the Hall of Fame, along with Rickey Henderson and Joe Gordon, this weekend. (The Globe has a lot of Rice stuff today.)
Rice will be the seventh Boston player to have his number retired, following Bobby Doerr (1), Joe Cronin (4), Johnny Pesky (6), Carl Yastrzemski (8), Ted Williams (9) and Carlton Fisk (27).
The Joy of Sox gathering is also that night. I have one ticket left, so if anyone out there wants to attend, let me know.
