During a 2019 Pawtucket Red Sox Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Clemens, the former pitcher credited Hurst for giving him the nickname "Rocketman" during their playing days. In 2015, Hurst described Clemens as "the greatest teammate ever" in an interview with a Boston Globe columnist.
Hurst was a standout basketball player, leading Dixie High School to the state tournament in his junior and senior seasons, despite suffering a cracked vertebra as a senior, and would receive basketball scholarship offers. In 2015, Hurst told The Boston Globe that he would shoot hoops at Boston Celtics practices during his Red Sox days after developing a friendship with Celtics guard Danny Ainge.
Hurst returned to the Boston Red Sox during spring training in 2008 as a pitching instructor. On February 26, 2008, Hurst was named as Special Assistant for Player Development with the Red Sox.
In 2005, Hurst and Jim Lefebvre coached China to a bronze medal at the 23rd Asian Baseball Championship, which was the first time ever that China had defeated one of the "Big Three" Asian teams (Japan, South Korea, Chinese Taipei). In 2006, Hurst and Lefebvre also led the Chinese team in the inaugural World Baseball Classic, where they were eliminated in the first round of competition in the Asian bracket, which also featured eventual tournament champion Japan, as well as Korea and Chinese Taipei. In the Asian Baseball Championship in 2012 and World Baseball Classic in 2013, alongside manager John McLaren, Hurst also coached Team China.
Hurst was inducted to the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in November 2004, on the heels of the Red Sox 2004 World Series victory, the club's first since 1918. Believers of "The Curse of the Bambino" have pointed out the letters "BRUCE HURST" can be re-arranged as "B RUTH CURSE". With his mother Beth having died in December 2003 on the eve of the Red Sox World Series win in 2004, Hurst was quoted saying years later, "I'm pretty sure, knowing my mom, that she would have gone up and put her arm around Babe and said, 'Let's get this over with.'"
In 1999, Bruce and Holly Hurst moved to Gilbert, Arizona.
Hurst signed with the Texas Rangers for the 1994 season. He was 2-1 with a 7.11 ERA in eight starts through June, but with the repercussions of the surgery still lingering, he decided to retire mid season.
On May 18, 1992, Hurst pitched a one-hit shutout over Dwight Gooden and the Mets. The only hit was a single by Chico Walker. At the end of the season, he began to feel pain in his left shoulder and underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and labrum. The rehabilitation was an arduous process, and Hurst ended making just two starts for the Padres in 1993 before being traded to the Colorado Rockies on July 26 with Greg Harris for Brad Ausmus, Doug Bochtler and Andy Ashby. He pitched just three games for Colorado.
On April 10, 1989, he pitched a one-hitter against the Atlanta Braves for his first National League win and also collected his first MLB hit as a batter. He went 15-11 with a career-best 2.69 ERA that season and led the National League in complete games with 10.
Hurst was 9-4 with a 4.60 ERA midway through the 1988 season when the Red Sox replaced McNamara at manager with Joe Morgan, who had been Pawtucket manager during Hurst's tenure there. The Sox were in fifth place, nine games back of the first place Tigers at the time of the managerial change. The team went 46-31 from that point forward to finish one game ahead of Detroit in the AL East.
Hurst went 9-2 with a 2.54 ERA under his new manager to end the season at 18-6, finishing fifth in balloting for the American League Cy Young Award that season. He pitched a complete game in Games 1 of the 1988 American League Championship Series against the Oakland Athletics, but was outmatched by Oakland's ace, Dave Stewart. With Boston down three games to none, the two faced off again in Game 4 with Stewart and the A's again emerging victorious to complete the sweep.
Hurst chose to leave the only organization he'd ever known as a free agent following the 1988 season, and signed a three-year contract with the San Diego Padres worth $5.25 million. Hurst indicated at the time that San Diego's relative proximity to St. George was the primary factor in his decision to leave Boston, and later expressed regret in leaving the Red Sox.
Hurst had a 9-6 record and 3.81 ERA when his manager added him to the 1987 American League All-Star team, however, he did not appear in the game. He ended the season at a not-so-brilliant 15-13 as the Red Sox finished the season 20 games behind the first place Detroit Tigers.
Hurst had gone 42-46 with a 4.59 ERA with the Red Sox before his breakthrough 1986 season, on a staff anchored by Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens. Hurst posted a 2.99 ERA with 13 victories despite spending six midsummer weeks on the disabled list with a pulled groin. The Red Sox won the American League East by 5.5 games over the New York Yankees to head to the 1986 American League Championship Series against the California Angels. Hurst went 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA in two starts in the ALCS won by the Sox in seven games.
With Boston winning 5-3 in the tenth inning of Game 6, the Mets were down to their last out with no one on base. A Red Sox World Series victory seemed all but a certainty as the Shea Stadium scoreboard was set to display "Congratulations Boston Red Sox, 1986 World Champions". Hurst had been selected as the World Series Most Valuable Player until the Mets rallied to win the game with three runs, forcing a decisive Game 7.
Getting off to a slow start in the 1985 season, Hurst was demoted to the bullpen for a portion of June and requested a trade. Hurst turned around his season with the addition of a forkball as a third pitch to his curveball and fastball. Hurst credited former Detroit Tigers coach Roger Craig for teaching him the concept of the forkball and former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Mike Boddicker for schooling him in the grip, confirmed later by Boddicker who described the pitch as a "foshball" that was essentially "a glorified changeup."
With the departures of John Tudor and Dennis Eckersley, Hurst became Boston's top starter in 1984, getting the nod on opening day and giving up two unearned runs in 8 and a third innings in a 2-1 road loss to the California Angels. He bounced back with a four-hit shutout of the Oakland A's, then was chased from his Fenway Park home opener after giving up seven runs while recording only a single out. Hurst was 12-12 on the season with a 3.92 ERA, tying with Ojeda and Oil Can Boyd for the team lead in wins.
Hurst became a regular in the Red Sox rotation in the 1982 season, starting 19 games with another nine relief appearances en route to a 3-7 record and a 5.77 ERA. He solidified his starting status the following season, going 12-12 with a 4.09 ERA across 32 starts and one relief appearance.
Returning to Pawtucket for the 1981 season, Hurst went 12-7 with a 2.87 ERA, getting a call-up to Boston in September. That season he played in the longest professional baseball game in history against the Rochester Red Wings, with 32 innings played April 18-19 and the final inning not played until June 23. Hurst came on in relief for the 28th inning and pitched five innings without giving up a run, later recollecting striking out Cal Ripken Jr. on a breaking ball at 4 a.m. prior to the league's commissioner ordering the suspension of play at the end of the inning. Bob Ojeda was credited with the win after pitching the 33rd inning on June 23.
After spending the 1981 minor league season in Pawtucket, Hurst received a September call-up, going 2-0 in five starts with a 4.30 ERA.
After making Boston's opening day roster in 1980, Hurst struggled and was reassigned to the Pawtucket Red Sox of the International League. He went 8-6 for Pawtucket over the next three months with a 3.94 ERA, with Boston recalling him in August to the parent club.
Hurst made his major league debut on April 12, 1980, coming on in relief in the second game of the season and giving up five earned runs in an inning of work in an 18-1 blowout at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers. He made six more appearances, all starts, before being optioned back to Pawtucket with a 10.57 ERA. He returned to the majors in August, ending the season with a 2-2 record and 9.10 ERA at the major league level.
Hurst started the 1979 season with Winter Haven, going 8-2 across 12 starts with a 1.93 ERA, then finishing the year in Bristol where across 15 starts and one relief appearance he had a 9-4 record with a 3.58 ERA.
Hurst met spouse Holly in 1979 during offseason studies at the Dixie College predecessor to Dixie State University in St. George. The couple married the year he graduated in 1981 and parented four children. Hurst was inducted into Dixie State's athletic hall of fame in 2011, and the school's baseball field is named for him.
In 1978, the Red Sox promoted Hurst to the Bristol Red Sox of the Eastern League, where he lodged six starts before having his season shut down with shoulder soreness, ending with a 1-3 record and a 2.73 ERA.
Hurst spent the 1977 season with the Winter Haven Red Sox in the Florida State League, going 5-4 in 13 starts with a 2.08 ERA, before incurring an elbow injury.
Hurst was selected by the Red Sox with the 22nd overall pick in the 1976 Major League Baseball draft, the 11th pitcher selected. The Red Sox assigned him to the Elmira Pioneers of the New York-Penn League, where Hurst was 3-2 with a 3.00 earned run average across nine starts.
