Major records held by Boston athletes
Jacoby Ellsbury: Most putouts by an outfielder in a game
The Red Sox outfielder (playing center at the time) tied a major-league record on May 20, 2009 for putouts by an outfielder in a nine-inning game with 12. The other two times the feat occurred were also in Boston. The Boston Braves' Earl Clark did it on May 10, 1929 against Cincinnati, and the Twins' Lyman Bostock matched it on May 25, 1977 against the Red Sox at Fenway.
