Jim Rice played his entire 16-year MLB career for the Boston Red Sox. In 1978 he was named the American League MVP after leading the league in RBI, hits, homeruns, triples, and slugging percentage. Overall, Rice was one of the best power-hitters of his era, belting 382 homeruns and capturing two Silver Slugger Awards to go along with his eight All-Star selections. From 1977 to 1979 he averaged over 200 hits and 39 or more homeruns, making him the only player in big league history to accomplish this feat for three consecutive seasons.
Continuing the Red Sox tradition of power-hitting left fielders, Rice was one of the greats to patrol left field at historic Fenway Park. In 2009 he took his rightful place in the Baseball Hall of Fame and was also honored by the Red Sox organization, who retired his No. 14 jersey.
As one of the greatest hitters of all-time there was a lot of interest in Rice after his playing career as a hitting coach. From 1992 to 2000 he served as the roving batting coach and hitting instructor for the Red Sox before taking over as the instructional batting coach for the franchise in 2001. Since taking over this role the Red Sox have had unprecedented success at the plate, capturing several individual batting titles and winning three World Series titles.
