Work at Fenway Park has progressed so rapidly that there is now no question of playing the Harvard game on April 9, although the park will not be absolutely complete for that game. But on April 18, the opening day of the championship season, it will be complete, except for a few minor details.

Now that the seating plans are out, many people are subscribing for boxes for the season. A special price has been made of $250 for a box seating four, for the 77 games. Many people are forming parties of four to take boxes, making the cost of each seat $62.50 for the season. These prices include admission.

There are 95 boxes in the front row, most of which seat four, and a few six people. Full details and plans may be had at the down-town office of the Boston American League Baseball Club, 246 Washington st.


Among the prominent men who have already secured boxes for the season of 77 games are Messrs. Robert Winsor, William H. Wellington, William B. Kehew, F.E. Peabody, Frank G. Webster, George G. Quincy, Frank W. Remick, Walter Crane, William Endicott Jr., Eben D. Jordan, Harry E. Russell, Alexander Stainert, George H. Flint, William F. Fitzgerald, Thomas W. Lawson, Samuel J. Elder, Charles S. Robertson, George W. Mitton, Gen. Chas H. Taylor, Jesse Hubbard, C.G. Lund, Charles E. Lentest, George E. Faxon and A.E. Hurlburt of the Boston Tavern.
