This day in baseball: Boggs’s arbitration case

In spite of losing his arbitration case on February 23, 1986, third baseman Wade Boggs was still awarded $1.35 million, which was the highest amount ever awarded as a result of the process.  The amount was a half million less than the $1.85 million Boggs was seeking from the Boston Red Sox.
