The College of General Studies offers “BASEBALL: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY SUMMER INSTITUTE,” July 20-22, in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox and Babe Ruth. The weekend will include lectures and discussions on Red Sox history, baseball statistics, baseball film and baseball as religion, plus a tour of the former Braves Field where the Red Sox played World Series games in 1915 and 1916, an optional tour of Fenway Park, and an optional Red Sox/Blue Jays baseball game (tickets are very limited, so reserve early). Parking on BU campus is included. The weekend also includes an optional dinner in an 18th floor lounge in the new Student Village with one of the best views in all of Boston, where you can look out at the winding Charles River, the sparkling city skyline and bustling Fenway Park.
