Mike Timlin and Alan Embree were crucial cogs in the Red Sox bullpen that helped Boston win a World Series title in 2004.
The Red Sox held a ceremony to honor members of the 2004 championship team on Tuesday and both Timlin and Embree were in attendance.
Timlin, who came to the Red Sox in 2003 as a free agent, gave Boston six
solid years of service in which he struck out a total of 273 batters.
The Sox traded for Embree in 2002, and the gritty left-hander was a live
arm out of the bullpen for parts of four seasons.
Both former pitchers were a part of the team in 2003 that witnessed the infamous Aaron Boone home run that abruptly ended their World Series hopes that year, and were grateful for the opportunity to win it all in 2004.
