On February 26, 1992 — Boston Red Sox owner Jean R. Yawkey dies at the age of 83 after suffering a stroke. For the first time in 59 years, someone other than a Yawkey will own the team. Mrs. Yawkey’s husband, Tom, became president of the Red Sox in 1933, and was the sole owner of the team for 44 seasons, longer than anyone in major league baseball history. The JRY Trust, headed by the club’s CEO John Harrington, will inherit her interest in the team and will sell the team to John Henry and a group of investors in 2002.
