Fenway Park will have a distinct Northeastern feel to it on Monday night as the hometown Boston Red Sox host the Tampa Bay Rays at 7:10 p.m. Some 1,000 Northeastern seniors will be in attendance at the game and Northeastern students will sing the national anthem, present the colors, throw out the first pitch, and give the official “play ball” call.
The original allotment of tickets to Monday’s game sold out quickly. For those who missed out, there’s good news. A small number of tickets are now available for purchase through the Office of Alumni Relations. Click here to register.
