- This article is about the real life baseball player. For the character, see Wade Boggs (character).
Wade Boggs is a former baseball who was a long-time third baseman for the Boston Red Sox. In 1999, he ranked number 95 on the Sporting News list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, and was a nominee for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.
Thought Boggs is hired as one of Monty Burns' top ringers for the nuclear plant's softball team during the playoffs -- and is given a token job to count him as an employee -- he doesn't play in the big game for the championship because he is punched out by Barney in Moe's Tavern after a heated argument over who was Britain's greatest Prime Minister, Pitt the Elder (Boggs' choice) or Lord Palmerston (Barney's choice). Right after Barney knocks Boggs out, still in a drunken rage, Barney knocks out Moe when Moe sarcastically agrees with Barney, saying "That's showin' him, Barn! Pitt the Elder!".
