How Fenway Park came close to being torn down in the 1960's

In June of 1967 Tom Yawkey was fed up with Massachusetts and Boston politicians. He was upset that a proposed stadium at South Station was not approved.


He gave an interview to Will McDonough and said if no new stadiumwas built, he would move the Red Sox.

YAWKEY WILL MOVE RED SOX IF NEW STADIUM IS NOT BUILT 
Boston Globe - June 21,1967

Luckily for New England that became the summer that saved baseball in Boston and Yawkey was suddenly happy with Fenway.

It really is amazing to think that the Boston Red Sox could have ever been moved from Beantown. Instead of becoming reviled figure by moving the team, he has Yawkey way named for him along side Fenway Park.
