The Red Sox have postponed tomorrow's scheduled open house at Fenway Park in light of Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The event was scheduled to give families with children on school vacation an opportunity to tour the park and walk on the field's warning track. 

It will be rescheduled for a later date.

“We all personally feel the grief of the horrifying tragedy that struck our community on Patriot's Day,” Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino said in a statement. “Our hearts are with our fellow Bostonians and visitors from around the world who were here for one of Boston's most spectacular and time-honored events.  In the coming days, we will join with others to find ways to show the victims of this heartless, cowardly act our sincere support, and to demonstrate to all, our community's unity, strength, and resilience.

“Fan safety has been and will continue to be of paramount importance. The club's security personnel will continue to work vigorously with Major League Baseball security, and federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities to maintain and reinforce the high level of security already in place at Fenway Park.”
