Pats Hall induction now July 29

This year's Patriots Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Tedy Bruschi and Gil Santos will take place on Monday July 29 at Gillette Stadium, the team announced today. The ceremony, which will be held on the NRG Plaza outside of the Hall, will begin at 5 p.m.

The original date for the ceremony was Aug. 11.

Bruschi and Santos will also be honored at the Patriots’ regular season home opener when the team hosts the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 12. But with this season’s home opener falling on a Thursday night, a Hall of Fame weekend was not possible. As a result, the induction ceremonies were moved to the night of the annual season ticket holder event on July 29.

The Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are free and open to the public.
