Welcome to the home opener

BOSTON -- It’s Opening Day at Fenway Park.

It’s an absolute beautiful day here this morning and there’s already a buzz on Yawkey Way. The Red Sox return from a 0-6 road trip through Texas and Cleveland and they’re in desperate need of some home cooking.

Even Red Sox players were saying that they need the fans now more than ever. The field looks fantastic and the new video boards are impressive.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona will meet with the media at 11 a.m., so check back around noon for more updates from the home opener against the New York Yankees.
