Sox Opening Day Postponed…Rescheduled for Tomorrow
The Red Sox had hoped to open the season today at Fenway but the game has been postponed and rescheduled for tomorrow at 2:10. The Sox will take on the Baltimore Orioles tomorrow in the opener. Unlike last season Sox fans will be allowed in Fenway to cheer on their local favorites. About 4,500 fans will be in the park that on a normal day without a pandemic holds just over 37,000 fans.
The Sox will look different this season as some Fenway favorites will not be wearing a Sox uniform. After many injury prone seasons Dustin Pedroia hung up the glove and retired from the game. Free agent Jackie Bradley Jr. left Boston and signed a contract with the Brewers. Andrew Benintendi also has a new home this season after being traded to the Kansas City Royals.
The Sox are still missing their #1 starter Chris Sale who still has months of rehab in front of him following Tommy John surgery last year. Their other star pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez is also out for the start of the season recovering from a “dead arm” that puts him on the self from March 22nd. Pitchers Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Richards, Martin Perez, Nick Pivetta and Tanner Houck will all start the season for the Sox.
The Red Sox opening day can be heard in the Berkshires on New Country 94.7 WNAW in North Adams…AM 1420 WBEC in Pittsfield and WSBS FM 94.1 in Great Barrington beginning with the pre-game show at 1:10 pm.
