The University of Connecticut Huskies were NCAA champions in both men’s and women’s basketball this season, and both teams will be honored by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
The Huskies will throw out a ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night’s 7:10 p.m. game that opens a three-game series against the New York Yankees. Senior guard Shabazz Napier will throw for the men’s team, and junior forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will throw for the women’s team.
The 2014 championship wins mark the fourth and ninth national title for the men’s and women’s teams, respectively.
The Red Sox also will celebrate Earth Day during Tuesday’s ceremonies.
