Jacoby Ellsbury, making his debut starting in centerfield at Fenway Park, becomes the first person from the Navajo tribe to play in the major leagues. The 23-year old member of the Colorado River Indian Tribes, who will play a significant role in the Red Sox World Championship batting .360 in 11 total postseason games, is put out by the catcher unassisted in his first big league at-bat.
