Brockton, Mass. (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee signed with the Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League on Monday.

The 63-year-old left-hander will start the season finale on Sept. 5 against the Worcester Tornadoes.

Lee still pitches over 200 innings per year in over-40 men’s leagues in New England and Atlantic Canada. He pitched for the Red Sox from 1969-78, winning 17 games each season from 1973-75. He was traded to Montreal in 1979 where he won 16 games in the first of his four seasons there.

Lee owns the Red Sox franchise record for games pitched by a left-hander with 321. He was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame in 2008.
