FILE - In this May 5, 2015 file photo, Boston Red Sox former pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee runs onto the field to join former teammates during pre-game ceremonies at Fenway Park in Boston.

He said he's a "pragmatic, conservative, forward thinker," supports legalizing marijuana, a single-payer health care system and paid family leave. Lee pitched for the Red Sox from 1969 to 1978, and was inducted into the team's Hall of Fame in 2008. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola, File)BURLINGTON, Vt.
