The gang was, literally, all there on April 20, 2012. The 100th birthday bash for venerable Fenway Park was the main event--it even upstaged the game between the Yankees and Red Sox. It was a marker moment in the rivalry between the franchises, a memorable piece of history for Fenway.
Caroline Kennedy threw out the first ball just as her great-grandfafther "Honey Fitz" Kennedy had done on April 20, 1912 when the Yankees (known as the Highlanders then) and the Bostons battled. For the record, back then the BoSox eked out an extra-inning triumph.
