Red Sox infielder Rico Petrocelli has personally hand-signed this MLB baseball and inscribed it 2x All Star- Petrocelli played his entire career with the Boston Red Sox, and was a member of the 1967 Red Sox team which was known to be the Carl Yastrzemski-led Red Sox Impossible Dream year. Petrocelli in Game 6 of the 1967 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals hit two home runs; unfortunately the Red Sox lost the series 4 games to 3. In 1968 and 1969 he led the league shortstops in fielding percentage, and set a record which has since been broken for home runs by a shortstop with 40. Later on in his career he was switched to third base after the Red Sox acquired Luis Aparicio, and still dominated this position and becoming the leader in fielding percentage in only making 11 errors in 463 total chances for a fielding percentage of .976. Rico Petrocelli is a two time All-Star (1967, 1969).
