Cody Ross Tweets That He’ll Wear No. 7 for Red Sox

by

Newly acquired Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross will be donning the same number as his right field predecessor.

The 2010 National League Championship Series MVP, who signed a one-year deal with the Red Sox earlier this week, announced on Twitter that he would sport No. 7 this season — the number that belonged to J.D. Drew during his five years in Boston.

Now a free agent, Drew reportedly plans to retire after 14 seasons with the Cardinals, Braves, Dodgers and Red Sox.

"YES! It's official, #7 for the #RedSox," Ross tweeted on Thursday evening.

After propelling the Giants to the World Series in 2010, Ross struggled last season, hitting .240 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs
