Another sign of how weird 2020 has been? The first time people other than employees are being allowed into Fenway Park is Saturday, and it’s so they can vote.
The Red Sox applied for, and were granted, permission to have Fenway Park serve as an early voting location for residents of the City of Boston. Because of the amount of open-air space available, it was a borderline no-brainer of a decision, given how social-distance friendly the venue is for this purpose.
Of course, since fans were not allowed inside the ballpark this season, this is the first time people have been permitted to go inside gates.
The Red Sox and Fenway Park Twitter accounts showed off some photos of the setup.
Fenway will be an early voting location this Saturday and Sunday, and only residents of the city can cast their ballot on Jersey Street.
