Trivia
In the first regular season game at Fenway Park, Red Sox players lost potential triples and home runs thanks to an overflow crowd that was roped off in the outfield as hits into the crowd were ruled doubles. The first homer at Fenway Park was the last of Hugh Bradley's career. The first grand slam at Fenway Park was hit by Boston Braves shortstop Rabbit Maranville and was the last of his career. It was the first time that a park's regular home team didn't account for a first (both grand slam and no-hitter). Red Sox second baseman Steve Yerkes had five hits, the most ever for a park's first game.
