Tomorrow's open house at Fenway Park postponed

|

In light of the tragic events that befell our community yesterday, the Boston Red Sox will postpone tomorrow's Open House at Fenway Park. The free event was to provide an opportunity during school vacation week for families and children to wander the concourses, see displays, and stroll on the warning track.  It will be rescheduled for later this season.

"We all personally feel the grief of the horrifying tragedy that struck our community on Patriot's Day," said Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino.  "Our hearts are with our fellow Bostonians and visitors from around the world who were here for one of Boston's most spectacular and time-honored events.  In the coming days, we will join with others to find ways to show the victims of this heartless, cowardly act our sincere support, and to demonstrate to all, our community's unity, strength, and resilience.

"Fan safety has been and will continue to be of paramount importance. The club's security personnel will continue to work vigorously with Major League Baseball security, and federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities to maintain and reinforce the high level of security already in place at Fenway Park."

The Red Sox begin a 10-game homestand at Fenway Park this Friday, April 19, at 7:10 p.m., against the Kansas City Royals.
