BOSTON (AP) -- Red Sox stars inducted into the teamÔŅĹs Hall of Fame tonight are celebrating more than their storied careers.  TheyÔŅĹre enjoying the glow of the teamÔŅĹs first World Series win in 86 years.

Former pitcher Bruce Hurst remembers coming within one strike of ending the teamÔŅĹs championship drought in 1986.

Fellow inductee Wade Boggs hopes he wonÔŅĹt have to see anymore video of himself crying on the bench after the ÔŅĹ86 loss to the Mets.

Dennis Eckersley was a 20-game winner with the Red Sox in 1978 and a Hall of Fame reliever when he ended it in 1998. He says all the bad things that happened to the Red Sox in the past help make this yearÔŅĹs win even more special.

Former outfielder Bernie Carbo was honored by the Red Sox Hall with a memorable moment for hitting the tying home run in game 6 six of the 1975 Series that set the stage for Carlton FiskÔŅĹs more famous foul-pole game-winner in the 11th innings.
