Fenway Park to host Army-Navy, BC-FSU baseball games

  Fenway Park will host Army vs. Navy on April 20, while Boston College faces Florida State on April 21.

America's oldest Major League ballpark, Fenway Park, has already played host to a trio of college football games this past season, and now it's adding a pair of college baseball games to its schedule later this spring.

Proceeds from both games will go to respective charities.

It was announced Wednesday that the Army-Navy rivalry will head to Boston as the Black Knights and Midshipmen are set to play at Fenway Park Friday, April 20 at 6 p.m. ET. The following day, Saturday, April 21 at 3 p.m. ET, Boston College will host ACC foe Florida State in the Seventh Annual ALS Awareness Game, in honor of former Eagles captain Pete Frates, who was diagnosed with the disease in March of 2012.

Sales from the Army-Navy game will benefit the Home Base Program, a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox Foundation that helps veterans suffering from PTSD and other “invisible wounds of war,” according to the Navy press release. 

“This opportunity afforded by the Red Sox organization is one that will be long remembered by our young men and our program," Midshipmen coach Paul Kostacopoulos said in the release. "Fenway Park is one of the most iconic ballparks in America. Being from New England, I know first-hand how much the Red Sox organization values its relationship will all levels of baseball and the community. Bringing the Army-Navy baseball game to Fenway Park and being associated with the Home Base Program is truly an honor for the United States Naval Academy.”

"We are thrilled and very thankful to have the opportunity to play Navy at Fenway Park on April 20th," Army coach Jim Foster said in an Army release. "It is an incredible venue to compete in against our biggest rival on the field but biggest ally off of it. I know the response will be great from baseball fans all over, our alumni, and supporters of the military. I want to thank everyone in our administration and the Red Sox organization for making this happen. It will create lifelong memories for these future leaders of our country."

Ticket proceeds from the Boston College vs. Florida State game will benefit the Pete Frates Home Health Initiative, which is a pilot program of the ALS Association, working with its Massachusetts Chapter, to provide in-home caregiving assistance for individuals living with ALS in Massachusetts who cannot otherwise pay for services, according to the Boston College release.
