Fenway Park will host Notre Dame-Boston College football game


UPDATE: Notre Dame-Boston College is now officially booked at Fenway Park in 2015.


Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Fenway Park Sports Group is in talks with Notre Dame and Boston College to host a football game at the ballpark in 2015.

That’s when the two schools are next scheduled to play and according to Cafardo the venue competing against Fenway Park for the game might be somewhere in Ireland.

So yeah, either way gonna be a bunch of Irish dudes at the game, I guess.

Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale made a hasty exit from his final Grapefruit League outing on Saturday after sustaining a left hip contusion. He was struck on the leg with a line drive from the Astros’ J.D. Davis in the first inning and immediately collapsed on the mound. He was able to walk off the field without a noticeable limp, however, and later told reporters that the ball struck a nerve and temporarily stunned his leg. As a precautionary move, the Red Sox pulled him after the incident and will have the left-hander undergo X-rays to rule out any further injury to his hip.

This was expected to be Sale’s last start of spring training. Prior to Saturday’s matinee against the Astros, the 28-year-old southpaw made three starts in camp, allowing five runs, one home run, three walks and striking out 18 batters in 14 innings. He’s still on track to start the season for the Red Sox during their road opener against the Rays next Thursday.
