Harvard Baseball to Commemorate 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park

BOSTON, Mass. – As part of the 100th Anniversary celebration of Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox have announced their intention of hosting the Harvard baseball team for a commemorative event on April 9, 2012.

That is the day, 100 years to the date that Harvard played in the very first game at Fenway in 1912. It was an exhibition game that ended in a 2-0 win for the Red Sox and inaugurated a ballpark that is still here.

The Red Sox and Harvard are working together to finalize details of the nature of that event, which is dependent on game schedules. An update will be provided in the spring.
