Yanks to change jerseys to honor Fenway
The New York Yankees are set to switch up their road uniforms for the first time as part of Friday’s celebration of Fenway Park’s 100-year anniversary.
The road grays will have the Yankees logo on it, instead of the trademark "NEW YORK" across the front.
The jerseys are modeled after the ones worn by the 1912 New York Highlanders, which officially became the Yankees the following year.
The Bronx Bombers will also wear a gray hat with a navy blue NY on the front, and a navy blue bill.
The Red Sox will also wear throwback uniforms to start the three-game series, but photos of the jerseys have not yet been released.
The Red Sox have planned a host of pre-game festivities to honor baseball’s oldest ballpark, including an attempt at breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest toast in one venue.
On Wednesday, the team will place 100 white balloons randomly around the city, each containing a pair of tickets to an upcoming Red Sox game. Five will hold tickets to Friday afternoon’s anniversary game for the lucky fans who can find them.
