The Red Sox confirmed to Boston 25 News Henry’s position on the matter.
"The Red Sox Foundation and other organizations the Sox created such as Home Base have accomplished a lot over the last 15 years, but I am still haunted by what went on here a long time before we arrived," Henry told the Herald.
Not all Red Sox fans agree with Henry's position though.
“Leave it alone, leave it alone. History is history, you can't rewrite it, you can only learn from it. Leave well enough alone," Holly Lamountain told Boston 25 News outside Fenway Park.
The problem extends beyond street signs. Yawkey's name is featured on plaques, banners and logos all around Fenway.
“The only reason we would change Yawkey Way is for Big Papi. He’s the only guy we’d change it for,” Sox fan Josie Pagliuca said.
The City of Boston has not responded to requests for comment from Boston 25 News.
