Clemens was drafted 19th overall by the Boston Red Sox in 1983. He broke into the majors with the Red Sox in 1984 and went on to win 3 Cy Young Awards. An undiagnosed torn labrum threatened to end his career early; he successfully underwent arthroscopic surgery at the hands of the then relatively unknown Dr. James Andrews.
In 1986, his 24 wins helped guide the Red Sox to a World Series berth and earned Clemens the American League MVP award for the regular season. He started in the all-star game and was named the most valuable player for throwing three perfect innings and striking out two.
Clemens would win the Cy Young Award twice more with the Red Sox, 1987 and 1991. On June 21, 1989, Clemens surrendered the first of 609 home runs in the career of Sammy Sosa. Sosa was then a rookie for the Texas Rangers.
The Red Sox did not re-sign Clemens following the 1996 season, despite offering him “by far the most money ever offered to a player in the history of the Red Sox franchise.” General Manager Dan Duquette remarked that he “hoped to keep him in Boston during the twilight of his career”, though Clemens left and signed with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The emphasis on the misquoted 1996 “Twilight” comment took on a life of its own following Clemens’s post-Boston successes, and Duquette was vilified for letting the star pitcher go. Ultimately, Clemens would go on to have a record of 162–73 for the rest of his career after leaving the Red Sox.
Clemens recorded 192 wins for the Red Sox, tied with Cy Young for the franchise record and is their all-time strikeout leader with 2,590. No Red Sox player has worn his #21 since Clemens left the team in 1996.
