Miguel Cabrera in Line for Fourth AL Batting Title

From 1985 to 1988, Wade Boggs dominated the American League leaderboards for batting average, winning four consecutive batting titles (he had five for his career).

That is, until now. (How did...

Flashback: Boggs becomes first player to homer for 3,000th hit

For Sale: Wade Boggs’ Fishing Boat

16 years before Alex Rodriguez reached the 3000-hit milestone with a home run…Wade Boggs did it. And to reward their third baseman, the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays presented the third baseman with a custom-designed 19-foot bass boat. Now that boat can be yours…but it’ll cost you.

Beer-drinking ghost of Wade Boggs to appear on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'

Hall-of-Fame slugger Wade Boggs also has shrine-worthy beer drinking abilities, so go the tales about Boggs' affinity and capacity for throwing back Miller Lites on cross-country flights during his playing days.
