BROCKTON, Mass. – 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, known as the “Spaceman” for his outrageous comments and beliefs, 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.
