According to Mike Silverman of the Boston Herald, team president Sam Kennedy has said the Boston Red Sox have invited the New England Patriots to be part of Opening Day at Fenway Park.
Opening Day at Fenway will be on the afternoon of April 3 as the Red Sox take on the Pittsburgh Pirates.
This wouldn’t be the first time that the Patriots took part in Opening Day. They did so two years ago after winning Super Bowl 49 against the Seattle Seahawks that year. Perhaps not too surprisingly, it was Tom Brady who showed off his arm by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.
On a related note, Big Papi has been all over social media the last few weeks expressing support for the Patriots and it’s even lead to some speculation that he might be coming back from retirement. That’s likely just speculation, but it does go to show how the Red Sox and the Patriots have been cheering each other on.
UPDATE: Mike Silverman sent out another tweet clarifying what he wrote earlier. Apparently Sam Kennedy says the team plans on inviting the Patriots to take part in Opening Day, but the official invitation hasn’t been made yet.
