Wade Boggs

 

 

18 Year NSL Career

Elected 2006, entered as a Green Mountain Canuck

Eleven All-Star

Four Time All-League

Selected in the 1983 Rookie Draft 1st Round (#6 pick)

He received 108 votes (65 needed)

 

Wade was originally selected by the Green Mountain Canucks in the 1983 Rookie Draft with the 6th overall pick. He played for the Canucks for seven years before being traded to New England for 3 years, St.City/Derby for 4 years, East York for 2 years, and finally Indiana for 2 years.

He fell just short of 300 hits with 2910, but posted a career batting average of .322. At the time of this writing, his average is 3rd highest in the league overall, his 3910 hits are 3rd, and his 575 doubles 2nd. His top season was 1986 when he batted .390 with 253 hits. For 5 years in a row (1985-1989) he finished in the top two in the league for batting average.

 

The twilight years of his career were nothing like the beginning, and he finished with the expansion Indiana Imperials. He still was able to bat .300 in his final year at the age of 42. Wade will always be best known for the 9 straight All-Star teams he made from 1984-92. His career mark of 1182 walks is 5th best on the all time list as OBP was obviously his forte. He led the league in doubles in both 1990 and 1991 with 48 and 54 respectively.
