We are so pleased to have as our guest on Sports Talk, the great defensive shortstop for the Boston Red Sox for seven years, mr. Rick Burleson. Rick played for seven wonderful years from 1974/1980 for the Red Sox. he later played for the California angels.
Rick, "The Rooster, a nickname given to him by Don Zimmer is regarded as one of the greatest defensive shortstops to wear a Boston Red Sox uniform. His intensity was unmatched, and the fans loved him for it. "It was the way I always played and its reflective of my personality," said Burleson.
