Two of the oldest and more storied baseball franchises will meet in 2011 when the Cubs pay a visit to Fenway Park for a three-game series with the Red Sox, or so says a proposed copy of next year's MLB schedule.â†µ
The schedule, which is still just in draft mode (and thus open to revisions), has Boston hosting Chicago May 20-22, which would be the Cubs first ever visit to the Fens.â†µ
Other dates of interest:â†µ
- Red Sox opening in Texas on April 1 â†µ
- Home opener on April 8 ... against the Yankees â†µ
- Road-trip to Pittsburgh, June 24-26 â†µ
Sure, it's the Pirates, but that late-June trip is of particular note, if only for the excuse to go visit what is considered by many to be one of baseball's best parks.
