BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Several former Red Sox players will be immortalized in the team's history on Wednesday.

While the Red Sox will be playing the Orioles in Baltimore, Fenway Park will celebrate the 2024 Red Sox Hall of Fame inductions and Fenway Honors Awards. According to the team, the inductees were chosen by a group of club executives, local and national media members, historians, and fan representatives.

The player inductees include former outfielder Trot Nixon, former second baseman Dustin Pedroia, and former relief pitcher Jonathan Papelbon. Each of the inductees won at least one World Series with the Red Sox.

The non-uniform inductee will be Elaine Steward, who is in her 37th season in the Red Sox organization. In 1990, Steward became the first woman and second African American in Major League Baseball to be named assistant general manager.

The “Memorable Red Sox Moment” inductee will be pitcher Billy Rohr for his performance against the New York Yankees on April 14, 1967. Despite it being his Major League debut, Rohr only gave up one hit and that came from the second to last batter of the game.

The Fenway Honors Awards will go to Tim and Stacy Wakefield, who both recently passed away after battles with cancer, for their charitable achievements.

The event will start at 5:30 P.M. and tickets start at $60. Net proceeds will go towards the Red Sox Foundation.
