51 years ago today, the Red Sox were at Yankee Stadium

It was the first game 162 in baseball history and there were 23,154 fans at the Stadium to see the Yankees play in their last game prior to facing and beating the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series. The sixth-place Red Sox came into the game at 75-86, a record they would be thrilled to have this season.

The final score of that game was 1-0, Yankees.

Roger Maris hit a home run off Tracy Stallard.
