Clemens, Garciaparra, Martinez honored by Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) - Pitchers Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez and shortstop Nomar Garciaparra have been selected as the 2014 inductees for the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame.

Clemens, a three-time Cy Young award winner with the Red Sox, spent 13 seasons with the team beginning in 1984. He's the team's all-time strikeouts leader with 2,590. He is tied with Young for the most career wins for the Red Sox at 192 and the most shutouts with 38. He was American League and All-Star MVP in 1986.

Martinez, who played for the Red Sox from 1998 to 2004, was a key part of the 2004 team that won Boston's first World Series in 86 years. He is the Red Sox all-time winning percentage leader at .760 and 72 10-strikeout games. Martinez's one-hit, 17-strikeout game against the Yankees in New York in 1999 was selected the "Greatest Red Sox Moment."

Garciaparra, who was with the team from 1996-2004, has the fourth-best career batting average in Red Sox history at .323.

Joe Castiglione, Red Sox play-by-by announcer for 31 seasons beginning in 1983, was chosen as the non-uniformed inductee.

The players were selected by a panel including club executives, journalists and booster club members. The induction will be in August.
