Red Sox owner wants to rename Yawkey Way for David Ortiz

BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox will ask the city to rename Yawkey Way, the street alongside Fenway Park, to change what owner John Henry called a haunting reminder of the ballclub's history of racial intolerance.

Henry told the Boston Herald on Thursday that he welcomes changing the name of the street that honors his predecessor Tom Yawkey, an inductee in the baseball Hall of Fame. It's also the mailing address for the ballpark and team offices.

Under Yawkey, who owned the club from 1933-76, the Red Sox were the last team in the major leagues to cross the color barrier in 1959. The team chose not to sign black players, including Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays.
