FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Connecticut and Fairfield County may be split between fans of the Yankees and the Red Sox, but soon only the Boston fans will be able to show their loyalty with their license plates.

On Friday morning, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman will join representatives from the Boston Red Sox and other state and local officials at a news conference in Hartford to announce the details of a Red Sox charity license plate program.

The program will be run through the Red Sox Foundation and help fund a soon-to-be-formed scholarship program for Connecticut public high school students who demonstrate academic talent, financial need and a commitment to community service.

No word on whether the Yankees plan to follow suit.
