On Friday, April 20th, the Boston Red Sox will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of Fenway Park. As part of the celebration, the visiting New York Yankees will wear retro New York Highlanders uniforms to honor the Highlanders being the first opponent to play the Red Sox in Fenway back in 1912. (The Highlanders would rename themselves the Yankees the following year).
