Wade Boggs played for three organizations during his 18-year career. But he cemented his Hall of Fame career with the Boston Red Sox. So it was only fitting that the franchise retired his iconic No. 26.

Boggs was on hand Thursday for the pregame ceremony as he became the 10th player to have his number retired with the Red Sox.

'I've come back home,'' Boggs said during the ceremony. ''Today is the final piece of my baseball puzzle.''
