Change Yawkey Way?  Red Sox owner John Henry has publicly petitioned the city of Boston to change the name of Yawkey Way, which stemmed from the controversy over former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey. The recent movement of inclusion caused a stir over Yawkey Way being divisive and shed light on the Red Sox being the last team to integrate black athletes. Joining Dan is Pastor Ray Hammond, who is a board member of the Yawkey Foundation, to offer his take on why there shouldn’t be a change. Should we change Yawkey Way to its original name?
