BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox are honouring some of their great players on the field as members of the "All Fenway Park Team."

The pregame ceremony on Wednesday night caps off a year of celebrations for the ballpark's 100th anniversary.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia and designated hitter David Ortiz were the only players from this year's team on the 40-man roster. Also among the two dozen attending the ceremony were Carl Yastrzemski, Fred Lynn, Carlton Fisk, Pedro Martinez and Roger Clemens.

The team was chosen by the fans, historians and members of the front office staff.

The members of the team each threw a ceremonial first pitch to players on the current roster.
