Suspended high above Van Ness street between Gates B and D, these banners represent legends in Red Sox history. Each of these players entered the National Baseball Hall of Fame wearing a Red Sox hat, or joined the Hall of Fame without a specific team hat but spent a sizable percentage of his career in a Boston uniform. From Early baseball immortals such as Cy Young, Tris Speaker, Jimmy Collins and Harry Hooper, to more recent Cooperstown inductees like Carlton Fisk, Dennis Eckersley, Wade Boggs and Jim Rice, the Van Ness banners are testaments to some of the most renowned figures in Major League history. In addition to the names displayed on the banners, several other Hall of Famers played for the Red Sox, while a number of former Boston managers and two long-time team executives also reside in Cooperstown.
