Rick Burleson is one of the best Short Stop's in Boston Red Sox history. He had a fiery temper and always went balls out. Burleson was a true ball player. He played for the Sox from 1974-1980 until some douche bag traded him to the California Angels. He won a Gold Glove in 1979 and was a 4 time All Star.
Rick Burleson's nickname is the Rooster.
