Fenway Park will not host the 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament, as originally scheduled, because of an in-house scheduling error, according to Fenway Sports Group. The ACC will look for a new venue for the 2009 tournament, but Fenway will host the 2010 tournament instead.
"We sincerely apologize for the error that resulted in Fenway Park being unavailable to host the 2009 ACC Baseball Championship," Mike Dee, president of Fenway Sports Group, said in a statement. "The Atlantic Coast Conference and its baseball championship are very important to us and we are truly sorry for this situation."
So it looks like the arm-wrestling match between John Manuel and I to determine which Baseball America staffer gets to cover the tournament at Fenway will have to wait a year.
