Tim Wakefield's knuckleball finally stopped dancing on Friday. After 19 years in the big leagues, including 15 with the Red Sox, Wakefield called it a career at the new JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla.
Wakefield was emotional during his speech and expressed the utmost appreciation and gratitude for his time in Boston. The 45-year-old knuckleballer at one point said "the moment I put on that jersey, I knew I wanted to retire with the Red Sox."
The seemingly ageless Wakefield was a constant in the Sox pitching staff for 15 years and his presence will certainly be missed.
