RED SOX OPEN UP FENWAY TO HOST FAN FEST; OVER 25,000 ATTEND
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).
