“The decision to postpone our first game of the season was not made lightly,” Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy said. “The built-in off day was created for just this purpose and tomorrow’s forecast for sunshine also factored into our decision. We have been eager to have fans back at Fenway Park for the first time in 18 months and look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow under brighter and drier conditions.”
For the 4,500 fans that were expected at Fenway Park Thursday, those tickets will be honored Friday.MORE NEWS: Stimulus Check Update: Are You Eligible For A Plus-Up Payment?
