Red Sox, Yankees to wear throwback hats for Fenway’s 100th anniversary (Pictures)
One of the greatest rivalries in all of sports, or a Limp Bizkit concert? Those who watch the Red Sox host the Yankees on Friday may find themselves pondering that question. Fenway Park opened its gates for the first time on April 20, 1912, meaning Friday is the 100th birthday of America’s most beloved ballpark. The throwback hats you see above are one of the many ways the Red Sox and Yankees plan to commemorate the historical day.
As Eye on Baseball pointed out, the hats are the same ones the two teams wore when they opened the ballpark 100 years ago. They look more like something Fred Durst would rock than something you would see on a baseball diamond, but it’s tough to argue with 100 years of history. If the celebration calls for white and gray caps, then white and gray caps they shall wear.
