BOSTON, MA – Today's Open House at Fenway Park drew close to 54,000 fans to the ballpark on the eve of its 100th anniversary. Tens of thousands of families and their children had unprecedented access, including the opportunity to walk on the warning track, sit in the dugouts, see the bullpens up close, touch the Green Monster, and peek into the manual scoreboard inside the historic left field wall.
Autograph signings took place throughout the day with current players like Dustin Pedroia, Darnell McDonald, and Daniel Bard. Red Sox alums such as Frank Malzone, John Tudor, Bernie Carbo, and Oil Can Boyd were also on hand to sign autographs and meet fans.
Tomorrow, Fenway Park will celebrate its 100th Anniversary. Fans attending tomorrow's game are asked to be in their seats by 2 p.m. to enjoy the pre-game ceremony. Gates will open at 12:30 p.m.
