Red Sox Consider Winter Skating At Fenway — And Maybe College Football, Too

BOSTON (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox are hoping to turn their
ballpark into a skating rink again next winter in a repeat of last
year’s Frozen Fenway.

And maybe a football field, too.

Fenway hosted the NHL’s Winter Classic on New Year’s Day 2010.

Then the rink was used for a series of men’s and women’s college
hockey games. At Mayor Tom Menino’s urging, the Red Sox also gave
local youth teams and city residents a chance to skate on the ice.

It’s unlikely the NHL would come back to Fenway so soon, but Red
Sox chief operating officer Sam Kennedy told Menino on Wednesday
that the team would like to have college hockey games. The mayor
was enthusiastic in his support.

Kennedy said the team was also exploring the possibility of a
college football game.
