Teevens tosses first pitch at Fenway
After a long wait, football head coach Buddy Teevens threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park Monday night. Teevens had been originally scheduled to throw out the first pitch at the April 25 Red Sox-Yankees game, but the game was posponed due to inclement weather. This time, 37,169 fans were on hand to watch the Red Sox as they downed the Cleveland Indians 6-2.
Teevens was present to promote the Fenway Gridiron Series, a series of three college football tilts which will be held at the historic park this fall. Dartmouth will travel to Fenway to play Brown University on Friday, Nov. 10, the penultimate game in its 2017 season.
