Doug Flutie will be at Fenway Park this Saturday to call Notre Dame’s Shamrock Series game against Boston College, NBC Sports said in a release.
On Wednesday morning, Flute lost his parents, Dick and Joan, within an hour of each other after both suffered heart attacks. Flutie posted a heartfelt message sharing the news on Facebook.
Flutie, a BC legend, has been the color commentator for Notre Dame home games on NBC this season. The Eagles’ Under Armour flashback jerseys this weekend were inspired by Flutie’s 1984 “Miracle in Miami” Hail Mary. Flutie won the Heisman Trophy that year.
There will be a pregame moment of silence for Flutie's parents, according to Notre Dame.
Saturday's game will air at 7:30 ET on NBC Sports Network.
