Red Sox Conducting ‘Tweet Poll’ of Fans About Moving Saturday Night Game to Afternoon Because of Bruins Game

The Red Sox may have a solution for what could be a tricky Saturday evening for Boston sports fans.The Sox are scheduled to take on the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night at 7:10 p.m. at Fenway Park.

That's normally not a huge deal, but this Saturday night, that game will be going up against Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Bruins and Canucks.

So, the Red Sox are apparently open to moving the start time up six hours to be a 1:10 p.m. game, allowing fans with tickets to the Sox-A's game to be able to watch the Bruins. The Sox have turned to Twitter and are conducting a "Tweet Poll" to gauge interest in the potential move.

Fans were instructed to tweet at the Red Sox with the hash tag, "#tweetpoll," to let the team know what followers think.

So far, the majority of the responses sound like fans are all for the move.
