    The ceremony took place prior to Tuesday’s 9-8 setback in 11 innings against the Oakland Athletics.

    Rice is the seventh Red Sox player to have his number retired, joining Bobby Doerr (1), Joe Cronin (4), Johnny Pesky (6), Carl Yastrzemski (8), Ted Williams (9), and Carlton Fisk (27).

    Over 16 seasons from 1974-89, Rice batted .298 with 382 home runs and 1,451 RBI in 2,089 games, earning eight All-Star selections and the 1978 AL MVP award along the way.
