The cable news networks are giving a shout-out today to 100-year-old Fenway Park. The home of the Boston Red Sox and, for a time, professional football’s Boston Redskins and Boston Patriots, opened on April 20, 1912. This morning MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” broadcast from the park. Host Joe Scarborough tells TVNewser it was a “great honor” for his team to be broadcasting from “baseball’s most hallowed ground,” adding, “even if the Sox are playing like a minor league team.” The Red Sox are at the bottom of the AL East division, and right now they are hosting their rival New York Yankees. Willie Geist and Worcester’s own Mike Barnicle went inside Fenway’s scoreboard this morning and, presciently, Geist gave the Red Sox a hit. Right now, in the second inning, they actually have 3 hits and one run, trailing the Yankees 3 to 1.
