New bowl game at Fenway Park to match teams from ACC, AAC

BOSTON (AP) — Add another bowl game to the mix, this one at Fenway Park.

The century-old baseball park will host a matchup between teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the American Athletic Conference, starting in 2020. The date for the Fenway Bowl is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

It will be the first college bowl game at the home of the Boston Red Sox. The ballpark has hosted other football dating back to 1912, including the American Football League’s Boston Patriots in the 1960s and The Game last year between Harvard and Yale.

Ah, something for which the lousy seats at Fenway will actually be appropriate!

Carl Yastrzemski’s Grandson Mike to Make Fenway Park Debut

Giants rookie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski will play on the same field his grandfather played on during his 23-year career when the Giants face the Red Sox this week at Fenway Park.

Yastrzemski, who is the grandson of Red Sox Hall of Famer and 1967 AL MVP Carl, got his first Big League action in late May. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said Mike will play all three games of the series that starts Tuesday, according to Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle.

He is batting .265 for the season with 19 home runs and 51 RBIs.

A little squib, for those of us interested in family lineages…..
