We'll C

2012 will mark the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park. There will be all sorts of celebrations. But 2011 will be the 100th season at Fenway. The 100th opening day, etc. Are they celebrating this stuff? Or waiting till '12? Or have I made a horrible math error?

Opening day was Apr 20, 1912.

1912 + 99 = 2011

I think you've made a horrible math error. Maybe forgot to include the double 0 (2000)?
Reminds me of 1986, when the Mets wore "25th Anniversary" patches that season. It was their 25th season, but the actual 25th anniversary wasn't until 1987. Like yourself, I find it all very confusing.
Q: right.

Tim: I know when the first opening day was--I said how 2012 is the 100th anniversary. But since 1912 was the 1st season, that makes 2011 the 100th season. See what I'm saying?

In your first year alive, you're 0 years old. I always heard they do it differently in China or something--they say you're 1 when you're born, we say you're 0.
Since the Sox asked about hosting the 2012 All-Star game as part of the "100th Anniversary" stuff...I'm guessing they're ignoring the "100th season" aspect. Although, I can't believe they'd miss the chance to use special balls at Fenway next year, and then again in 2012. And, of course, sell those balls at the park.
I was going to post about this too.

Are they celebrating the actual 100th season of baseball as it is being played (2011) or are they celebrating 100 completed years of baseball (assuming 2011 is completed) (2012)?
