BOSTON (AP) Wade Boggs' number 26 will be retired by the Boston Red Sox.

Boston said Monday it will retire the number of the Hall of Fame third baseman during a ceremony at Fenway Park on May 26, when the number will be added to the ballpark's right-field facade.

Boggs played with Boston from 1982-92 and was an 11-time All-Star, including eight times while with the Red Sox.

Now 57, Boggs had a .328 career average during 18 big league seasons that included stints with the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay.

Boggs' number will be the 10th retired by the Red Sox.
