Did Wade Boggs really drink 107 beers in a day?

MLB Hall of Famer Wade Boggs inspired a scene that will air as part of the Season 10 premiere of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Apparently the former Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees legend is known as much for his beer-drinking ability as his hitting prowess.

“Ghost” of Wade Boggs to Appear on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”

Years ago, a story was circulating about Wade Boggs. You know…the one where he once, allegedly, drank dozens(!) of beers on a team flight. “He was famous for baseball, he was also famous for the number of beers he could drink,” actor Charlie Day told Jimmy Fallon Monday night. “Supposedly, when they would have these cross county flights he would drink on average 40 to 50...

Wade Boggs Told Charlie Day He Drank 107 Beers In One Day (Video)

Wade Boggs: The man, the myth, the drinking legend. The Hall of Fame third baseman was known for his affinity to throw back a few cold ones on cross-country flights during his playing days, with the epic tale being that he once drank 50-odd Miller Lites on a single trip. That’s incorrect. The former Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays sluggers told actor Charlie...

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. I can't type this without laughing hysterically, but on coast-to-coast trips, anecdotally, the third-baseman would throw back somewhere between about 50 to 107 beers (including...

No Number 21 For Porcello—Because of Roger?

Clemens And BoggsFor some unknown reason, the Red Sox have not retired Wade Boggs' uniform number 26. And yet, it appears that they are protecting the uniform number 21 of Roger Clemens—since no one has worn it since his departure in 1996. Now, reportedly, Rick Porcello was denied number 21 when he joined the club. So, a guy who is almost universally scorned for suspected PED...

My Small Brush With Tony Gwynn’s Greatness

Tony Gwynn was probably the best pure hitter I’ve ever seen play in my life. I also saw Pete Rose and Wade Boggs play, but those are the only two I would consider an argument about and I believe Gwynn was better. He was always one of my favorite players even though he was a member of the 1984 Padres team that beat the Cubs. He was too good and seemed like too good of a guy to have...

Jacoby Ellsbury Joins Babe Ruth, Wade Boggs in Heated Club of Top 10 Red Sox Who Became Yankees (Photos)

Red Sox fans are telling themselves that the Yankees overpaid. Jacoby Ellsbury, as good as he is, is not worth $153 million over seven years, and surely his legs will fail him and his power won’t return to satisfy such a contract. But it still hurts that the homegrown center fielder has left the Red Sox. Ellsbury, a longtime Boston fan favorite, has become the latest Red Sox player...
