Retiring veteran holds trophy on teamÔŅĹs return to Fenway
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

BOSTON (AP) -- When the Red Sox climbed off the buses that brought them back to Fenway Park this morning, fans might have expected one of the teamÔŅĹs biggest stars to be carrying the World Series trophy.

Instead, it was held by Ellis Burks, who didnÔŅĹt even play in the series.

At age 40, Burks is the oldest player on the Red Sox, and heÔŅĹs retiring after 17 seasons in the majors.

Burks started his career with the Red Sox in 1987 and played his first six seasons in Boston. He went on to play for several other teams before rejoining the Red Sox before the start of this season.

Burks, however, injured his knee in April and missed most of the season. He was not on the active roster for the first and only World Series of his career.
