Leslie Osborne’s No. 12 jersey was retired at halftime of Friday’s 1-1 draw between the Boston Breakers and Sky Blue FC, making her the fourth Breakers player in history to have such an honor.
Maren Meinert, Angela Hucles and Kristine Lilly also have retired Breakers jerseys as part of the club’s “Pillars of Excellence.”
“I will never forget my time in Boston, and I am forever grateful for all of the owners who helped allow me the opportunity to play professionally there,” Osborne said at the time of the announcement that her number was going to be retired. “To have my number retired by Boston and be next to Kristine Lilly, Angela Hucles, and Maren Meinert is an incredible honor. Playing for Boston was really, really special. It was the best decision in my career.”
Here’s a look at how things looked on the scene in Boston on Friday for Osborne’s honoring:
