The Red Sox have finally lifted their requirement that to have a number retired you must be in the Hall of Fame.

Johnny Pesky has been with the Red Sox in some capacity for 57 years ( player, manager, coach, scout and broadcaster ) and on his 89th birthday on Saturday they will retire his number six.

A wonderful honor for a wonderful gentleman.

Congrats Johnny.
