This from the Red Sox:

The Red Sox are hosting a free “Open House” on Thursday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Fans may enter any gate and view historical artifacts, memorabilia, and new displays, or just tour the ballpark.

The Fenway Park Open House will provide the opportunity for fans to walk around the ballpark at their own pace, discover behind-the scenes locations, and learn more about Fenway Park’s history. Fans will be allowed to walk on the warning track, sit in the dugouts, see the bullpens up close, touch the Green Monster, and peek into the scoreboard booth inside the historic left field wall.

With nearly 100 new bronze plaques and displays now adorning the concourses, fans can experience how Fenway Park has become a living museum. Fans will also have the opportunity to inscribe their personal sentiments in a book of tributes, “Here’s to Fenway Park.”

A host of former Red Sox greats including Frank Malzone, John Tudor, Bernie Carbo and Oil Can Boyd will sign autographs in the State Street Pavilion. Alumni will be available throughout the day, changing every hour on the half hour.

Fans will be able to touch and hold such items as actual used bases, the pitching rubber, baseball bats, and baseballs, and baseball mud.

Merchandise and concessions will be available for purchase throughout the day. The event will take place rain or shine.
