Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for Boston amid guardedly optimistic hopes that the team can at least be more competitive than they were last season.

Among the biggest difference this year will be the presence of fans in the Fenway seats. With a limit of 4500 fans allowed, we're not talking anything close to a sellout, but the sounds of actual cheers, as opposed to what club piped in over the public address system in 2020, will be most welcome.

Gates will open at 12:10 PM, two hours prior to first pitch.

Locally, fans can either watch the game on NESN or listen on the radio via WEEI. Out-of-area fans will be able to watch on the MLB Network.
