In 1951, the Red Sox celebrated the franchise's 50th anniversary and honored members of the 1901 Boston Americans in May. The following month, future Red Sox first baseman Harry Agganis appeared at Fenway Park as a member of a Marines team from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, where he played both football and baseball. The local star, who had also played at Fenway Park in 1949 as a member of the Boston University football team, batted cleanup and helped lead the camp's baseball team over Boston College. In the fall, Agganis returned to Boston University to play quarterback, and also returned to Fenway Park, where the Terriers played their home football games. On October 13, 1951 at Fenway Park, Agganis led BU to a 16-0 victory over his former teammates on the Camp Lejeune football squad.
