RED SOX OPEN UP FENWAY TO HOST FAN FEST; OVER 25,000 ATTEND
Published May 16, 1995
The Red Sox held their Friendly Fenway Fan Festival yesterday and over 25,000 fans attended the event despite rainy weather. Fans started lining up five hours before the event started, and the team had to start the tour early because of the lines. Red Sox GM Dan Duquette and Manager Kevin Kennedy held a Q&A forum, while players signed autographs and posed for photos. Food and gifts were provided as fans toured Fenway and the field. Red Sox CEO John Harrington called the response "unbelievable" and promised to hold the event again (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/16).
