A word about June 27




We remember June 27

Happy # 78 to Rico Petrocelli, one of the most popular players to wear the Red Sox uniform.   Americo Peter Petrocelli was born in Brooklyn on this day in 1943.  He broke with Boston in 1963.  He quickly became a regular and played in the 1967 & 1975 World Series.    Petrocelli was a big bat in the Boston lineup:  210 HR & 773 RBI over 13 years.

1973:  David Clyde made his pitching debut with the Texas Rangers.  He was 18, two weeks out of high school and never materialized as a major league pitcher.  He was probably rushed to the majors.
