El Tiante

In 1975, the Boston Red Sox played in one of the most exciting World Series of the modern era. Their "ace" pitcher that year, with a whirling dervish motion, was Luis Tiant -- one of the game's most effective pitchers, winning 229 games in his 19 year career (1964-1982). He wore this jersey during that magical 1975 season. Tiant was known for chewing tobacco while pitching and a tobacco stain is visible beneath the letter "x" on the jersey.
