Cy Young Monument

Boston, MA
1993

Cy Young, the winningest pitcher of all time, led the Boston Pilgrims (now the Boston Red Sox) to a championship at the First World Series in 1903. The Pilgrims played this historic series at the Huntington Avenue Grounds which was Boston’s first ballpark predating Fenway Park. The Grounds, since being demolished, is now incorporated into Northeastern University’s campus. In the statue, Young is in the classic pitcher’s stance concentrating on the batter, the sign from the catcher, and his next pitch.
