Lyons was taken 19th overall by the Red Sox in the 1981 draft and debuted for the Sox on April 15, 1985. Lyons spent the next year and half platooning in center field before being shipped off to the White Sox for future Hall of Famer Tom Seaver. Lyons played seven more season and returned to the Red Sox on two more occasions, where he was warmly received by the Fenway faithful. Lyons hung them up at the end of the 1993 season and tried his hand at acting, appearing in Arli$$, Major League II and For the Love of the Game. More recently Lyons has found a home in Fenway's announcer's booth, where he has filled in as color man since the 2014 season.
