With all the starting positions filled, the voting for the Red Sox All-Fenway Team will conclude with the 10th man spot on Tuesday. Fans can vote for up to 12 players on a list of 25 for the best Red Sox reserves.
Although they aren't in the starting nine, the list of 25 includes some of the biggest names in Red Sox history.
Fans must choose between some of the team's best starting pitchers, like Jon Lester, who helped the Red Sox win the World Series in 2007, Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley, who held a 3.92 ERA in eight seasons with Boston, and three-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens.
Some of Boston's most feared hitters are among the 25 candidates to choose from. Jim Rice's 1,451 RBIs put him third on the all-time Red Sox list. Carl Yastrzemski spent 23 seasons with the Red Sox and was the last player to win the Triple Crown when he did it in 1967. Mo Vaughn, better known as "The Hit Dog," won the MVP in 1995 with 126 RBIs.
The candidates for the reserve spots range from Bobby Doerr (1937-51), to "Mr. Red Sox" Johnny Pesky (1942-52), to Tim Wakefield (1995-2011). With such a large range of seasons that were filled with fan-favorites, there are plenty of solid options for the Red Sox All-Fenway reserves.
