Luis Tiant is one of the most beloved pitchers in the history of the Boston Red Sox. The Cuban native is remembered for his charisma, his eccentric delivery and his prominent role in the 1975 World Series match-up between the Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. Tiant won the first and fourth games, then pitched Game Six, which ended with Boston taking the championship through Carlton Fisk’s iconic 12th-inning
After his playing career, Tiant scouted for the New York Yankees and held two minor-league coaching positions before rejoining the Red Sox organization in 2002 as a pitching coach for the Lowell Spinners. A member of the Red Sox Hall of Fame, Tiant continues working with the team as a pitching advisor.
