CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—The Harvard men's hockey team's home game against Union will be played outdoors at Boston's famed Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m.
The game, originally scheduled for Bright Hockey Center, will now be played as part of a doubleheader, following a Division III game between Babson and Norwich at 3:30 p.m. The event is part of Sun Life Frozen Fenway 2012. Tickets are available by phone at 877-REDSOX9 and online at redsox.com/frozenfenway.
"We're excited about the opportunity to play at Fenway Park with all its history and tradition," said Ted Donato '91, the Robert D. Ziff '88 Head Coach for Harvard Men's Ice Hockey. "We're looking forward to an incredible environment and the experience of a lifetime for our players."
It will not be the first outdoor game for Harvard. The team played many games outdoors before the completion of Watson Rink in 1954 and hosted games at Harvard Stadium from 1905 until 1910.
Fenway Park, which opened in 1912, is Major League Baseball's oldest ballpark. Sun Life Frozen Fenway 2012 will be a 16-day ice event that will include two free community skate days, eight high school hockey games and six college hockey games. Visit redsox.com/frozenfenway for more information.
