The playoff hopes of the Red Sox and Rays may very well be dead by late-September. That doesn't mean Boston fans won't have something to be grateful for.
Boston will welcome all Dead Heads in New England to Fenway Park on Sept. 21 to receive a special Red Sox Grateful Dead T-shirt as the band celebrates its 50th anniversary. They'll also treat guests to a performance by Fennario before first pitch.
A portion of proceeds will go to the Rex Foundation, the official charity of the Grateful Dead.
Quick, somebody tell Bill Walton.
