Will a Snowy Fenway Park Prevent Red Sox Home Opener? [PHOTOS]
The Red Sox home opener is less than two months away, and as these incredible photos reveal, Fenway Park is currently buried in snow. If the snow doesn't stop (or at least start melting!) is Opening Day doomed?
These photos were taken a few days ago after last weekend's storm by the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore. As you can see the snow is now higher than the fence in right field! That's over 5-feet of snow.
Opening Day at Fenway is Monday, April 13th as the Red Sox play host to the Nationals with first pitch scheduled for 3:05 p.m. Unless everyone in Red Sox nation shows up at Fenway Park with a shovel, or Pablo Sandoval eats all the snow, it's not looking good for the 2015 home opener.
The Northeast has seen a record amount of snow in February, especially the city of Boston. Beantown has been hammered with nearly 8 feet of snow, and according to meteorologists, it isn't over just yet. With expected storms in coming weeks and temperatures not getting any warmer, look out for a new Opening Day date.
