Fenway group will host beach volleyball tourney
BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox are going to the beach.
Fenway Sports Group, the baseball club's sports marketing affiliate, is teaming up with the national beach volleyball tour to stage an event in Boston this summer. The AVP Boston Open will take place in nearby Quincy Aug. 16-19.
"Since we're in a baseball stadium, I'd say it's a home run," two-time Olympian Logan Tom, who had never been to Boston before, said in a news conference at Fenway Park on Wednesday.
