Baseball season is still three months away, but Boston's Fenway Park was bustling on Monday as the hometown Bruins and visiting Pittsburgh Penguins arrived at the Winter Classic in vintage baseball uniforms.

Led by captain Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins surprised fans gathered at the corner of Yawkey Way and Van Ness St. by exiting the team bus wearing 1915-era Red Sox threads to commemorate the club's third World Series title.

Not to be outdone, the Penguins stayed within their black-and-gold motif by honoring the 1925 World Series-winning Pirates.
