This day in baseball: First no-hitter at Fenway

The first ever no-hitter at Fenway Park was thrown by Red Sox pitcher George “Rube” Foster* on June 21, 1916.  Foster no-hit the New York Yankees to win 2-0.  The Red Sox had moved into Fenway in 1912.

*As opposed to Andrew “Rube” Foster, organizer of the Negro National League.
