April Showers Expected to Rain Down on Fenway Tomorrow

Looks Like a 90 Percent Chance of Rain

"We're looking at heavy rain headed our way as we head toward the evening hours. We are expecting to see lots of rain. So Opening Day forecast? It doesn't look too great. Unfortunately, rain will be nearby by the midday hours. It may be light to start but it's going to come down. And once it does in the afternoon, it will be raining pretty hard and it will also be very windy." -- 4.5.09, Sarah Wroblewski, meteorologist for WBZ-TV (Ch. 4) in Boston

Saturday in the Park

The season opener at Fenway Park might be a washout on Monday, but groundscrew members John Driscoll pounds down the dirt around homeplate while Jeremy Fuller smooths the gravel in the the area on Saturday morning.
