A protest we could support

Protesting Ken Harrelson's trade

On April 19, 1969, the Red Sox stunned fans by trading Ken "The Hawk" Harrelson to the Indians, less than two years after they'd acquired him to replace the injured Tony Conigliaro and the year after he'd made the All-Star team and led the league in RBIs.

Three days later, fans marched outside Fenway Park in protest.
