Red Sox Hall of Fame

Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame is to recognize the exceptional careers of former Red Sox players, managers, executives and media personnel.  It has been in existence since 1995.

Entry into the Red Sox Hall of Fame can be achieved in one of two ways:

  • Being nominated by a 15-member selection committee consisting of:

    • Red Sox broadcasters and executives

    • Past and present media personnel

    • Representatives from the Sports Museum of New England

    • Representatives from the BoSox Booster Club

  • Being inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown

In the chart below, the induction year of those who entered the Red Sox Hall of Fame by local selection are shown in red, while those who entered by virtue of their selection by the National Baseball Hall of Fame are shown in blue.  Those who have both colors were initially selected locally, but also qualified later as a result of their induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
