Always El Tiante


Of all the colorful players to wear the Red Sox uniform in the decade before I was born, I regret most that I could not see Luis Tiant deliver a ball to the plate. Shown here at a Maine golf tournament Wednesday, he still looks like he could guile his way to a few outs.

  • I love guys that have the sack to support and maintain the Hogan ‘stache. That bad boy is a full growth if ever there was one.

  • El Tiante is my all time favorite Red Sox. The guy was an absolute riot, plus he was HUGE in big games. One of the toughest pitchers ever. Anyone who has never seen his delivery must find some video and see Tiant looking at center field while delivering his pitch. He was one of the most unique athletes in sports.
