BOSTON – Fenway Sports Group has announced that due to an in-house scheduling error, it will be unable to host the 2009 ACC Baseball Championship.
As a result, FSG has immediately requested to host the 2010 championship, and the Atlantic Coast Conference Executive Committee has approved the request for 2010.
“We sincerely apologize for the error that resulted in Fenway Park being unavailable to host the 2009 ACC Baseball Championship,” said Mike Dee, President of Fenway Sports Group. “The Atlantic Coast Conference and its baseball championship are very important to us and we are truly sorry for this situation.
“We look forward to bringing ACC baseball to Fenway and will do everything possible to make 2010 a great success.”
The committee has asked the conference office to move quickly to find a suitable venue for the 2009 championship, and the ACC will issue a release as soon as a new location has been approved.
“It’s disappointing that this scheduling error has resulted in the upcoming championship not being played at Fenway Park, but we look forward to being at Fenway in 2010,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. “In terms of this year’s event, we are moving swiftly to find a quality venue to host one of our premiere conference championships.”
