Before his retirement, Boggs was plagued by newspaper reports that the expansion Devil Rays gave him financial compensation in return for selecting a Devil Rays cap for his plaque at the Baseball Hall of Fame, though he has denied that any such condition was part of his contract.[37] In light of those reports (and other rumors that teams were offering number retirement, money, or organizational jobs in exchange for the cap designation) the Hall decided in 2001 to change its practice of deferring to players' wishes regarding cap logo selection and reinforced the Hall's authority to determine with which cap the player would be depicted. Boggs is wearing a Boston cap on his plaque.

It’s a myth, Boggs told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Friday.

“This was never, ever a subject,” the Hall of Fame third baseman said.

So how did the rumor get started?

“I think it came from when Jose Canseco said, ‘If I get in the Hall of Fame, I’m going in as a Devil Ray,'” Boggs said. “And someone probably misconstrued that I said that and that Mr. (Vincent) Naimoli offered me a million dollars to be the first Devil Ray to go into the Hall of Fame, and that conversation never took place.”

Boggs chose in 2005 to wear a Red Sox cap on his plaque in Cooperstown because he was drafted by Boston and spent more than 16 years in the organization

Big Amoco Sign doubted you though, so you have to marry your mother in law.

If you don't think Albert is going into the HOF as a Cardinal, you're a [expletive] idiot.

Please update my wiki.

Meltdown May in full swing

https://www.stltoday.com/sports/basebal ... cd125.html

I never doubted final say...just that they consider the players' wishes. Pujols played enough on the Angels that if he asked for it, they likely give. And if he's their employee (and why wouldn't he be? ), he will.

Again, if you believe Albert isn't going in as a Cardinal, you're a [expletive] idiot.

The reason the players don't have actual say is so they can't be bought.

Cool edgy posts though bro.
