BOSTON — The Reds-Red Sox game wasn’t the only event at Fenway Park on Tuesday night.
Marblehead High School held their prom at Fenway Park during the game, using the new 521 Overlook space in right center field for the event. The 7,600-foot event venue was just added to the ballpark this season as part of the new Truly Terrace area behind the bleachers.
According to Marblehead High’s senior class counselor Sara Berkowitz, it was the first prom ever held at Fenway during a game.
“We’re the first ball, I believe, to be here when there’s a baseball game, let alone here, so I’d say we’re making history,” Berkowitz told Tom Caron during NESN’s broadcast of the game.
It’s unclear how much Marblehead High cost to hire Fenway for the school’s annual prom. But how much does that really count for a once-in-a-lifetime experience? Unfortunately for Red Sox fans in the senior class, the home side lost 2-1 to the Reds due to costly mistakes by infielders Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts.
“I have the best students in the world, so how could I do less than Fenway Park?” Berkowitz said to Caron.
