In his first game as a Red Sox player,  Green pinch ran for Vic Wertz before playing shortstop in a game the BoSox lost 2-1 to the Chicago White Sox. His first hit at Fenway Park was a triple off the Green Monster. One week after the BoSox signed Green, the team purchased the contract of Earl Wilson, Boston's second black player.
