NY vs Red Sox at Fenway Park ~ 100 Years Old Today

Today mark's the 100th anniversary of the first Fenway Park game between the New York American League Baseball team, the New York Highlanders, and the Boston Red Sox on April 20, 1912.

The next year the Highlanders changed their name to the Yankees and moved from Hilltop Park in Washington Heights to the Polo Grounds where they became tenants of John McGraw and the New York Giants until 1923 when the first Yankee Stadium was erected.

Baseball team rivalry and ball park history knock me out.

Here are links to my 1961 Yankees Red Sox story and my 1962 Polo Grounds tale.
