" Mr. Red Sox " On his 87th birthday, September 27, 2006, the Red Sox honored Pesky by officially naming the right-field foul pole "Pesky's Pole." On September 23, 2008, the Red Sox announced that they would retire the No. 6 Pesky wore as a player to mark his 89th birthday and his long years of service to the club. (Although he still suits up in No. 6, Pesky wore No. 22 as the team's manager in the 1960s, and 35 as a coach from 1975-80.)  Pesky's is the sixth number retired by the Red Sox; his number retired was the 1st to break the Red Sox's code to have a number retired: being in the Baseball Hall of Fame and having spent at least 10 years with the Red Sox (Pesky wasn't elected to the Hall of Fame). On September 28, 2008, his number was officially retired in a ceremony at Fenway Park.
