The Red Sox' only home games between now and Aug. 27 will come in the form of a three-game weekend series with the Yankees, Aug. 16-18 -- but fans aching to watch baseball at the old ballyard will have a chance to do so on Aug. 21, too, the team announced today.
Starting at 8 that night, fans can go to Fenway to watch Scotty Smalls, Benny the Jet, Ham, Squints, and the rest of their crew on the center field Diamond Vision screen as the Red Sox mark the movie's 20th anniversary with a showing of "The Sandlot."
Fans will sit in the stadium's lower bowl along the first-base line on a first-come, first-served basis, and will have the long-awaited opportunity to see what Wendy Peffercorn looks like on a 40x100-foot high definition video board. Concessions will be available, and admission is free for season ticket holders and members of the Red Sox Kid Nation.
Other general admission tickets for the public are priced at $10 for adults, $5 for children 3-12, and free for kids 2 and under. They can be purchased at redsox.com/sandlot, by calling (877) REDSOX-9, or by visiting the Fenway Park ticket office. The park will open at 7 that night.
