The Red Sox have proclaimed the next to last day of the season “Thanks, Mike Night,” as they honor the retiring Mike Lowell.
Lowell, a four-time All-Star calling it a career after 13-big league seasons, will be honored in a ceremony before a game against the Yankees, the team that drafted him in 1995.
The 36-year-old Lowell has spent the last five years in Boston, hitting .288/.344/.466 with 79 homers and 370 RBI in 2,462 at-bats. In the championship season of 2007, he drove in 120 runs for the Red Sox and finished fifth in the MVP balloting. He was also named the World Series MVP that season.
