One Tim Wakefield story I remember is after he had a great 2003 ALCS, but Boston desperately needed him to come and pitch relief, he gave up the homer to Boone and he was legit worried that Boston fans would hate him, but absolutely no one did. Nothing but love for Tim Wakefield. Rest in Peace legend.
The Red Sox are sharing the heartbreaking news that knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, a fan favorite for his work on and off the field, has died. The update comes just days after it was revealed Wakefield had been diagnosed with brain cancer. 💔 #RIPpic.twitter.com/t4wsC6gJqm
