Fans tough it out at Fenway for Red Sox, Marlins game
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Die-hard Red Sox fans toughed it out in the heat at Fenway Wednesday night as the team beat the Miami Marlins 15 to 5.
A thermometer at Fenway Park read over 100 degrees around 6 p.m. By 10 p.m., it was 93 degrees.
Misting stations were put in place indoors to cool fans off. Cool compresses were also made available at the First Aid station.
Fenway's medical staff kept busy as fans fell to the hot night.
"It was hot for all of us. But it really took a toll," said one man.
“I think we’re well ready for it. The good news is by game time the sun will be low and won’t be a big factor. But again, if people haven’t hydrated properly that may manifest itself during the game so we’ll be ready for that,” said Charles Cellucci, Director of Security and Emergency Services at Fenway Park.
