Fenway Celebrates its 100th Birthday – Yankees Spoil Party

The Red Sox celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park by inviting 200 former players and coaches, including the likes of team icons Johnny Pesky, Luis Tiant, Carl Yastrzemski, Bill Buckner, and Pedro Martinez joining the celebration, to come on the field for pre-game celebrations. Caroline Kennedy, the great-granddaughter of Boston’s former mayor known as Honey Fitz, who threw out the first pitch on opening day in 1912, tosses one of the three ceremonial first pitches. However, the Yankees spoil the party by hitting five homers, including two by Eric Chavez, on their way to a 6 – 2 win. For Ivan Nova, it is his 15th consecutive victory, dating back to last season. The victory moves the right-hander ahead of Whitey Ford (1961) and Steve Sundra (1938-39), and one shy of the franchise record of 16 consecutive wins, established last season by Roger Clemens.
