Red Sox: Renaming Yawkey Way may happen sooner than later
Boston's Yawkey Way may have a new name as soon as Opening Day.
MassLive.com reported that Red Sox President Sam Kennedy expects the change to happen sooner than expected, which was halfway through the current season near the All-Star Break.
Calls to change the name of the famous street outside Fenway Park came last summer.
Yawkey Way is named after longtime owner Tom Yawkey, who has been accused of racist practices.
The name change requires City Hall approval.
