All-Star Game Press Event at Fenway Park on Friday

WHAT: The Boston Red Sox will host a press conference to welcome officials from the Cape Cod Baseball League to Fenway Park in preparation for the Under Armour Cape League All-Star Game to be held at Fenway Park on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 7:05 p.m.

     The Cape League, founded in 1885, is celebrating its 125th season in 2009. The league’s so-called “modern era” began in 1963 with the merger of the former Upper Cape and Lower Cape Leagues and the appointment of Daniel J. Silva as commissioner. The 2009 game at Fenway Park will be the 45th in the league’s “modern era” and the 22nd using the present East Division vs. West Division format, which began in 1988.

     Since its inception, many Cape League alumni have gone on to the Major Leagues including numerous Red Sox. Current members of the Red Sox who have played in the Cape League include Jason Varitek (Hyannis 1991 & 1993), Kevin Youkilis (Bourne 2000), Jacoby Ellsbury (Falmouth 2004), Justin Masterson (Wareham 2005), Mike Lowell (Chatham 1994), Jason Bay (Chatham 1999), Mark Kotsay (Bourne 1994), Daniel Bard (Wareham 2005), Aaron Bates (Brewster 2005) and Pitching Coach John Farrell (Hyannis 1982).

     To purchase tickets for the game on July 23, fans can log on to or call (877) REDSOX-9. Fans with disabilities may call (877) REDSOX-9 to purchase accessible seating (while supplies last).
