Well, add Keith Foulke to the list of ex-Red Sox players to come on with the team in some type of coaching role. Over the years, we have seen Pedro Martinez, Jason Varitek, and Tim Wakefied, just to name a few, help out in some capacity within the Red Sox organization.
On Thursday, it was announced that Keith Foulke would be joining the Boston Red Sox in Spring Training as a player-development consultant This is from the 43-year-old's Twitter:
In 11 seasons in the MLB, Foulke saved 191 games and had a 3.33 ERA. He only spent two seasons with the Red Sox, notching 47 saves and a 3.73 ERA overall, but in 2004 he was special. Foulke managed to save 32 games and notched a 2.17 ERA.
He will forever be in almost every Red Sox fan's mind for helping us to one of the most memorable seasons in all of baseball.
