Red Sox to meet Yankees on Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary

Old Fenway

Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston reports on a preliminary 2012 Red Sox schedule that is floating around that, surprise surprise, has the Sox meeting the Yankees on the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, April 20th.

One big question: April 20th is a Friday, so how will ESPN be able to over-hype the living hell out of this thing if they’re not broadcasting it?  My guess: they televise the Sunday Sox-Yankees game and just assert that that is really the 100th anniversary and dare anyone to suggest otherwise.

    I’ll shave with a Gem razor and carry a quart of Calvert gin with me and await for the arrival of George Herman Ruth in a couple of years.

      I think you might have missed him already. I was wondering about the color photo so I did some research(Wiki), scoreboard was added in 1934. Also mentions Duffy’s cliff, an incline in front of the wall (ala Crosley Field) from 1912-1933.

    “One big question: April 20th is a Friday, so how will ESPN be able to over-hype the living hell out of this thing if they’re not broadcasting it?”

    I see a special edition of Sunday Night Baseball on April 20, 2012. Unless everyone is still smoking…

    They should schedule a series with the Braves also.

    I don’t see the problem for ESPN. The Friday game will likely be in about the 6th inning by the time Sunday at 8:00 rolls around.

    Will the Red Sox be wearing their milkmen throwbacks?

    Guess who’s got two thumbs and will be boycotting ESPN that weekend? THIS GUY.
