To celebrate the movie’s 20th anniversary, the Red Sox will host “Movie Night at Fenway Park” featuring the popular hit “The Sandlot” on Aug. 21.
The movie will be shown on Fenway Park’s 40-by-100-foot Diamond Vision video board in center field, which is designed to give fans a one-of-a-kind experience.
“This gesture is designed to show appreciation to our season ticket-holders and to ensure that the children of Red Sox Nation are able to experience Fenway Park in new and different ways,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Sam Kennedy. “As a parent of young children, I am excited to think that families can enjoy an evening together at Fenway Park, even when the team is on the road, and watch a movie that is a favorite of so many. We thank Mitsubishi Electric, who manufactured our outstanding Diamond Vision high-definition screen, for their partnership, and for helping to make this evening happen.”
General admission tickets for the public, priced at $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, are on sale now. They can be purchased at redsox.com/sandlot, by calling (877) REDSOX-9, or by visiting the Fenway Park ticket office. Fans with disabilities can call (877) REDSOX-9 to purchase accessible seating. The Red Sox’ TTY number for hearing-impaired fans is (617) 226-6644.
Fenway Park gates will open at 7 p.m. for the event and the movie will be shown beginning at 8 p.m. Fans will be seated in the lower seating bowl and down the left-field line, and concessions will be available.
