Red Sox to honor Wakefield on May 15
CHICAGO -- Veteran knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, who earned career win No. 200 last September and retired two months ago, will be honored in a pregame ceremony at Fenway Park on May 15. The Red Sox are calling it "Thanks, Wake Day."

The Red Sox play the Mariners in a 4:05 p.m. ET contest that day. The ceremony is expected to start at 3:30.

This will mark the third time Wakefield will take part in Fenway festivities this season.

He was honored along with former team captain Jason Varitek in a first-pitch ceremony at the team's home opener on April 13.

And one week later, Wakefield participated in the 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park, poignantly pushing Bobby Doerr in a wheelchair to his position at second base while Varitek did the same for retired shortstop Johnny Pesky.
