(NECN) - As the Boston Red Sox wrap up the most disappointing season in years, the team is finding cause to celebrate.

Members of the 2004 World Series Championship team are taking to the field at Fenway Park Tuesday, celebrating the historic win eight years ago.

It is expected to be a nice distraction from what has been a very disappointing season for Red Sox Nation, many of whom are already looking forward to next year.

Dr. Charles Steinberg, Senior Advisor to Boston Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino, stopped by "The Morning Show" to discuss this past season and what lies ahead for the boys of Beantown.

The championship team will be honored before the 7:10 p.m. game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

Then on Wednesday, they will be honoring the all-time team voted on by the fans.

Fans, historians and staff cast more than 120,000 votes to determine the All-Fenway team, which is comprised of the greatest Red Sox players in Fenway Park's 100 year history. 

Members of the team will be presented before the regular season home finale at 7:10 p.m. against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

The players who are scheduled to attend include: 

Fred Lynn

Jim Rice

Pedro Martinez

Nomar Garciaparra

Jason Varitek

Tim Wakefield

Mike Timlin

Keith Foulke

Trot Nixon
