Red Sox President & 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.”

Tickets for the Thursday opener will be honored on Friday with a 2:10 PM game time. Gates will open at 12:10 PM with pre-game festivities beginning at 1:40 PM.
