The Boston Red Sox will be honoring former pitcher Tim Wakefield throughout the 2024 season with a special patch on their jerseys:

The team announced today that they will be featuring a dark blue heart with Wakefield’s number 49 in red font, styled after a Boston Red Sox jersey with white trim on the sleeves of their uniforms. The Red Sox mention that the patch is in the shape of a heart, a nod to Wakefield’s role as an honorary chairman of the Red Sox Foundation charity.

Fans will be able to purchase their own #49 patch at the Red Sox Team Store later this season, with proceeds benefiting the Red Sox Foundation.

Additionally, all attendees at the Red Sox 2024 home opener against Baltimore on April 9th will receive a special Wakefield lapel pin. This pin will feature the same design as the team’s jersey patch.

Tim Wakefield was a beloved figure for the Red Sox, playing for the team from 1995 until his retirement after the 2011 season. Known for his mastery of the knuckleball, he achieved great success and two World Series championships in 2004 and 2007, earning a special place in the hearts of Red Sox fans. Wakefield passed away last October at the age of 57, and sadly, his wife Stacy also passed away just five months later.

For fans interested in unique baseball memorial patches, this marks the first time the Red Sox will wear a patch in honor of a former club member in a non-„2“ ending season. The team last wore a memorial patch in 2022 for broadcaster Jerry Remy; prior patches honored Johnny Pesky in 2012, Ted Williams in 2002, and owner Jean Yawkey in 1992.

Before 1992, the Red Sox paid tribute with simple black armbands, honoring Tony Conigliaro in 1990, owner Tom Yawkey in 1976, and player Harry Agganis in 1955.

The San Diego Padres will also wear a heart patch in 2024 in memory of team owner Peter Seidler.
