Rico Petrocelli played his entire career at shortstop and third base for the Boston Red Sox (1963-1976).

In 1967, Petrocelli was selected to the All-Star game and was a key contributor to the Red Sox "Impossible Dream" season. In Game 6 of the World Series, he belted two home runs against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Red Sox ultimately lost the series to the Cardinals, 4-3.

In 1968 and 1969, Petrocelli led league shortstops in fielding percentage. In 1969 he set a record for home runs by a shortstop with 40 and was again named an All-Star. He had another strong season in 1970, hitting 29 home runs and a career-high 103 RBI.

When the Red Sox acquired future Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio in 1971, Petrocelli moved to third base. At his new position, he once again was the leader in fielding percentage, making only 11 errors in 463 total chances for a fielding percentage of .976. In the 1975 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds, Petrocelli hit .308 with four RBI and three runs.

After a series of injuries, Petrocelli retired at the end of the 1976 season. For his career, Petrocelli hit 210 home runs with 773 RBI and 653 runs in 1553 games. He was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 1997.

Following his playing career, Petrocelli got involving with broadcasting. Petrocelli has worked at WITS, WKOX, WRPT, WBPS and most recently WEEI Sports Radio-Boston. He also served as an in-studio pre-game analyst for WABU-TV's Boston Red Sox coverage. He currently serves as NESN's Pawtucket Red Sox color analyst.
