RICO PETROCELLI, RED SOX LEGEND
March 20, 2009
Rico Petrocelli addressed a capacity crowd at the first Stubblebine Company Business Breakfast of 2009. Rico recounted his remarkable journey in baseball and how faith has made a difference in his life.
Rico Petrocelli was voted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 1997. He started in the '67 and '69 All-Star Games, and was known as one of the league's best fielders for over a decade. In 1969, Petrocelli set the American League record for home runs by a shortstop (40) and tied the record for fewest errors by a shortstop. Rico played in the 1967 and 1975 Word Series. Rico retired after the 1976 season, having played 13 seasons with the Red Sox and subsequently worked as a minor league manager and coach for more than 10 years, mostly in the Red Sox organization.
Today, Rico owns and operates RP Communications in Nashua NA, an organization that assists teams of all kinds to develop an attitude and skill-set for success. He currently lives in southern New Hampshire with his wife.
