It’s uniform day at Fenway Park (Terry Francona would not fit in)

Tonight is Majestic Jersey Day at Fenway Park where the team is encouraging fans to wear their Majestic Red Sox Jersey.

A few establishments around town are getting on board as well ‘€“ for example, if you wear your Majestic Red Sox Jersey to Jerry Remy’€™s Sports Bar & Grill’€™s Fenway location on May 2, you’€™ll receive half off all appetizers, and at Who’€™s on First there’€™ll be no waiting in line and 10 percent off your food bill if you’€™re in a jersey.

It offers a reminder regarding the days when Terry Francona wouldn’t wear his uniform top in games, choosing instead to wear his Majestic pullover. It got to a point where MLB executive Bob Watson came down to the dugout in the middle of a game at Yankee Stadium to check on Francona’s attire.

Francona did return to Fenway in 2012 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, wearing his No. 47. He did, however, take it off and throw to a fan before exiting the field.
