Lucier was 3-4 with a 3.89 ERA in 19 appearances for the Sox in 1943 and 1944 before being sold to the Phillies in late September 1944. In 1945 he appeared in 13 games for the Phillies, posting an 0-1 record. But despite a 2.21 ERA, he was out of the major leagues by June.
When the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, his family bought him a replica championship ring. He still gets a half-dozen letters a month asking for autographs and also has been to several signings at Fenway. It makes me feel good, he said.
