Bill Lee, 63, has signed a contract with the Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League and is scheduled to pitch in the team's final game of the season on September 5, against the Worcester Tornadoes.
Lee pitched for the Red Sox for ten seasons (1969-78) and then spent four years with the Expos (1979-82). Lee has pitched in semi-professional and senior leagues since leaving MLB. The AP reported that Lee "still pitches over 200 innings per year in over-40 men's leagues in New England and Atlantic Canada".
Another former Red Sox pitcher, Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd, pitched for Brockton in 2005.
