Tom Yawkey, at the time the owner of the Boston Red Sox, sits in his Fenway Park office in Boston in August 1955. The Celtics and the Bruins were pioneers in professional basketball and hockey during the 1950s. But the Red Sox were the last Major League Baseball team to field a black player. Pumpsie Green debuted at Fenway in 1959--more than a decade after Jackie Robinson played for the Dodgers, and even after Willie O’Ree took the ice for Boston in the all-white National Hockey League.
