Playing careerEdit

After being drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the first round (seventh overall) of the 1981 Major League Baseball Draft, Boston made his MLB debut with the White Sox on May 13, 1984, and appeared in his final game on August 11, 1994.

On October 4, 1986, he homered off Bert Blyleven. This was the 50th and last longball Blyleven allowed that year, which is a record for most homers allowed in one year.

The New York Mets selected Boston off of waivers from the White Sox in 1990. He signed with the Colorado Rockies as a free agent for their inaugural season in 1993. He signed with the New York Yankees for the 1994 season.[1]

Post-playing careerEdit

In 2001, Boston was named minor league roving outfield instructor for the White Sox. In 2013, White Sox manager Robin Ventura named Boston the team's first base coach.
