Dave Roberts won’t be at Fenway celebration

Dave Roberts, whose stolen base vs. the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS led to Boston’s first World Series championship in 86 years, will not be among the ex-players returning to Boston for the 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park Friday afternoon.

Roberts is a coach with the San Diego Padres.

Roberts said he would have loved to attend, but his duties with the Padres will prevent that from happening.


The Red Sox invited all living former players back to Fenway Park for the event.
