Former MLB All-Star Pitcher
Career Highlights: Best known for his signature knuckleball pitch, former MLB All-Star Tim Wakefield was instrumental in helping the Boston Red Sox win two World Series titles. Wakefield began his career with Pittsburgh in 1992, but spent the majority of his MLB career (17 seasons) with the Red Sox (1995-2011). In 19 MLB seasons, he posted a 200-180 record with a 4.41 ERA. Wakefield’s 186 wins with Boston places him third on the all-time Red Sox win list behind Cy Young and Roger Clemens, who have 192 each. Wakefield ranks first all-time in Red Sox innings pitched (3,226), and is second in wins at Fenway Park (97), second in appearances (627) and second in strikeouts (2,156). An All-Star in 2009, he was one of only five American League pitchers to ever start at least one game in 17 consecutive seasons for the same team as he recorded at least four wins and 125 innings in each of his 17 years in Boston. Inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame, Wakefield won the 2010 Roberto Clemente Award and was also the 1995 American League Comeback Player of the Year.
