The Boston Red Sox were seen outside the Dunkin Donuts on the corner of Boylston and Tremont Street at midday Wednesday, protesting Emerson College’s push to house over 100 students in Fenway.
“Man, we been playin in Fenway since 1912. These kids wanna live there? I don’t think so, man,” responded recently retired Red Sox legend David “Big Papi” Ortiz.
Other Sox sluggers were not exactly thrilled with with the news of the recently granted lease through fall of 2019. The team, who was eliminated from playoff contention early last month, claims that they had no say in Emerson’s expansion into Fenway, where they play ball.
Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts referred to Emerson’s proposal to erect a hostel located at 12 Hemenway Street as “utter horseshit”.
At press time, Red Sox manager John Farrell was seen smashing the glass displays in Little Building lobby with a game-used bat.
