Public memorial for Beane set for Wednesday
BOSTON -- Fans can pay their final respects to Carl Beane, the Fenway Park public address announcer who died on May 9, at a public memorial service on Wednesday.

Beane, the "Voice of Fenway Park" since 2003, died after suffering a heart attack and crashing his car in Sturbridge, Mass. He was 59.

Beane's family will hold the service at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Convention Center at 7 p.m. ET The hotel is located at 366 Main Street in Sturbridge.

The Red Sox paid tribute to Beane on Thursday night during the series opener against Cleveland. Before the game, the video board in center field displayed a photo slideshow of Beane's career, and the park's PA system remained silent throughout the night.

Beane's final game was on May 6, when Boston lost to Baltimore in 17 innings.
