BOSTON, MA -- The Fenway Park grounds crew continues the ballpark's transformation from a Major League Baseball diamond to a multi-purpose football field, as Fenway Sports Management prepares to host the The Fenway Gridiron Series.
UConn and Boston College are featured in the series with a Saturday, Nov. 18 matchup at 7 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.
The transition from baseball diamond to football field began on October 23 and will continue until November 6. Installing goal posts, sodding the infield, painting field dimensions and logos are just a few of the preparations taking place during the transition.
Tickets are still available for the event and are on sale now at www.redsox.com/gridiron.
