Sox move Sat. game time; to honor B's Sun.
The Red Sox announced today that the start time of Saturday’s game against the Brewers at Fenway Park has been moved from 1:10 p.m. to 7:10 p.m.in order to accommodate the Bruins’ victory parade that morning.
The change was made at the request of Mayor Thomas Menino in order to minimize congestion caused by large crowds anticipated for the two events.
The duck boats are scheduled to depart the TD Garden at 11 a.m. on Saturday and make their way toward Copley Square, concluding sometime between 1 and 1:30 p.m.
The Red Sox will also pay special tribute to the Stanley Cup champion Bruins before Sunday’s game against Milwaukee (1:35 p.m.). The assumption here is that players will be on hand to toss out the first pitch, Stanley Cup in tow.
