It's Opening Day For The Red Sox, Take 2; Fans Return To Fenway


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was déjà vu at Fenway Park on Friday as the Red Sox had a take two on their season opener. Opening Day was supposed to happen on Thursday, but it got pushed back to Friday because of the weather.

The game against the Baltimore Orioles began shortly after 2 p.m. on Friday.

Fans are allowed back into the stands at Fenway Park now that the state is in Phase 4, Step 1 of its reopening plan. Stadiums, ball parks, and arenas can reopen at 12 percent capacity.

Some fans arrived at Fenway early Friday morning in the hopes of getting game day tickets, even though tickets were only being sold online. Glenn, from Quincy, said he arrived at the ball park around 3 a.m., and found ways to pass the time.

"I walk around Fenway, I look at all the different things, I look at all the new additions, and I meet a lot of great people," Glenn said.

He said he is happy the game was postponed because he was working on Thursday and always tries to make it to opening day.

Other fans, including Same, from Hopedale, and Adam, from Reading, sized up the day and this season's Sox. They said it's good to see people back at Fenway, even if it's not a lot. They also said they are excited to have Alex Cora back this year.
