Jim Rice IN The Hall of Fame!

Red Sox legend Jim Rice (above, at a press conference at Fenway Park this afternoon) was elected today to the Hall of Fame on his final time on the ballot. Rice gave Carl Yastrzemski credit for teaching him how to play Fenway's left field.

It is a done deal - Jim Rice was elected to the MLB Hall of Fame and will accompany Rickey Henderson into Cooperstown this July. It took 14 years for #14 to make it -- but who cares. he is there. Only one percent of the players who put on the uniform make it to the Hall and Rice is Happy - Red Sox Nation is Happy!

Congratulations to Jim Rice - #14 will be mounted on the Right Field facade after all!
