The Dedham 375 Committee’s yearlong celebrations to commemorate the town’s 375th anniversary will include a “Dedham Day” at Fenway Park on Friday, July 22.
Dedhamites will be able to pay $28 for tickets to a 7:05 p.m. game when the Red Sox is scheduled to take on the Seattle Mariners.
A bus will depart from St. Mary’s parking lot to Fenway Park at 6:15 p.m. and will return at the end of the game, for those who would prefer not to drive to the game. A ride on the bus will cost an additional $12 per person.
The committee’s co-chairs say they are excited to be celebrating the town at historic Fenway Park.
“The Town of Dedham and the Boston Red Sox both have long histories and devoted fans that get passed down from generation to generation," said Donna Greer. “We are thrilled that we are going to be able to celebrate our town’s anniversary at America’s most beloved ballpark.”
“Dedham is home to the Fairbanks House, the oldest timber-frame house in the country,” Marie-Louise Kehoe said. “It’s very appropriate that we should celebrate in the oldest ballpark in America.”
Tickets are available in the town administrator’s office. Call Nancy Baker at 781-751-9100 or Brian Keaney at 617-775-0710 for more information.
