Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs smiles as he takes to the field prior to a 1992 game at Fenway Park in Boston. Boggs, known for his superstitious rituals, shaved his mustache and light beard prior to the game, which he has worn since the late 1980s. Going into the game, he was suffering a 0-18 hitting slump.
