“Early on in my minor league career, Frank Malzone and Eddie Popowski would tirelessly work with me on becoming a better third baseman,” former Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs told the Globe. “Not only Johnny Pesky but Frank Malzone was instrumental in my development as a third baseman. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Malzone family at this time.”

Malzone had worked for the Red Sox as a player-development consultant since 2008.
