In his 18-year career, Boggs racked up 3,010 hits for a career average of .328. This was accomplished in the pre-steroids, doctored-baseball era when baseball parks had more generous dimensions and were more pitcher-friendly than they were today.
Boggs was a member of the 1986 American League Champion Boston Red Sox and the 1996 World’s Championship New York Yankees team. The third baseman, who won a Gold Glove for fielding excellence with the Yankees, played in 12 consecutive major league All Star Games from 1985 through 1996.

Lamp was born in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California in 1971, Lamp was selected in the third round (62nd overall) by the Cubs in that year’s MLB Draft. In a 19-season career, Lamp posted a 96-96 record with a 3.93 ERA and 35 saves in 639 games pitched. His best season was 1985: 11-0 and a 3.32 ERA in 105 innings. In 1984 with the Blue Jays, Lamp came up just one win short of Luis Arroyo’s 1961 record for most consecutive wins by a reliever. Lamp was involved in two individual career milestones involving a pair of future Baseball Hall of Famers. On August 13, 1979, he gave up Lou Brock’s 3000th hit. He also surrendered Cal Ripken, Jr.’s first major-league hit, a third-inning infield single in the White Sox’s 8–7 victory over the Baltimore Orioles at Memorial Stadium on August 16, 1981.
After losing the 1986 World Series to the New York Mets, the Red Sox compiled a winning percentage below .500 for 1987. One of the main problemswas a weak bullpen, and Smith was brought in to rectify the relief problems. Despite giving up a game-winning home run in his 1988 opening day Fenway Park debut, Smith posted his best ERA in five years. The Red Sox had the good fortune of being in the American League’s Eastern division; in September, they caught the Detroit Tigers and held off every other team to clinch Smith’s second and last trip to the postseason. In Game 2 of the 1988 ALCS against the Oakland Athletics, Smith gave up three singles, including Walt Weiss’ game-winning RBI single, in the ninth inning of a tied game. Boston had a 0–2 series deficit going to Oakland. After Boston lost Game 3, Smith surrendered two insurance runs after entering Game 4 with the score 2–1 to complete the four-game sweep. Smith’s salary rose to over $1.4 million, but he followed his 1988 season with a mediocre 1989, finishing with his worst ERA in five years. For the seventh consecutive season, his number of innings pitched decreased or remained the same. However, he compiled 12.23 strikeouts per nine innings, nearly two higher than any other season of his career. It was also the last of his four seasons with more than 10 strikeouts per nine innings. Smith’s statistics for the 1980s gave him a valid claim as the best reliever of the decade, although he was rivaled by Jeff Reardon. While Smith had four consecutive 30-save seasons, Reardon finished the decade with five consecutive. Smith saved 234 games by the end of 1989, and Reardon had 266. Reardon was also a member of the 1987 World Series-winning Minnesota Twins. On December 6, 1989, the Red Sox had both closers on their roster when they signed Reardon as a free agent. Two of the past decade’s most dominating closers in history were even pitching in games together for Boston for the first month of 1990 with Reardon setting up Smith for a save on April 18—a game started by a third famous pitcher, Roger Clemens. The unusual double-closer situation lasted less than a month before Smith was traded to St. Louis for slugging outfielder Tom Brunansky on May 4, 1990
Billy Mike Smithson (born January 21, 1955 in Centerville, Tennessee) is a retired American professional baseball player. He was a right-handed pitcher who appeared in 240 games in the Major Leagues over eight seasons (1982–1989) for the Texas Rangers. Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox. Smithson stood 6 feet 8 inches (2.03 m) tall and weighed 215 pounds (98 kg). After attending the University of Tennessee, Smithson was selected by the Red Sox in the fifth round of the 1976 Major League Baseball Draft. During the course of his seven-year minor league apprenticeship, he participated in the longest baseball game in history between the Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings during the 1981 season. During the early morning hours of Sunday, April 19, 1981, he worked the full 15th, 16th and 17th innings, and got two outs in the 18th inning before turning the ball over to Win Remmerswaal. Smithson allowed two hits and three bases on balls in 32⁄3 innings pitched—but no runs. The game was suspended after 32 innings, and resumed June 23; Smithson’s PawSox won it in the bottom of the 33rd frame. After attending spring training with the 1982 Red Sox, Smithson was traded to the Rangers on April 9 for left-handed relief pitcher John Henry Johnson. He was recalled by the Rangers from the Triple-A Denver Bears and began his MLB career late in August as a starting pitcher—the role he would play for much of his big-league tenure.
