4 Headed Into Red Sox Hall of Fame

BOSTON (AP) _ Pitchers Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez and shortstop Nomar Garciaparra are the 2014 picks for the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame.

Clemens, a three-time Cy Young award winner with the Red Sox, spent 13 seasons with the team beginning in 1984.  He’s the team’s all-time strikeouts leader with 2,590.

Martinez was a key part of the 2004 team that won Boston’s first World Series in 86 years. He spent seven seasons with the team, and is its all-time winning percentage leader at .760.

Garciaparra has the fourth-best career batting average in Red Sox history. He played for Boston for nine seasons.

Joe Castiglione, Red Sox play-by-by announcer for 31 seasons, was chosen as the non-uniformed inductee.

The players were selected by a panel including club executives, journalists and booster club members. The induction will be in August.
