A look at some of today's planned Fenway Park pregame festivities, which are scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m.:
A detail from Hanscom Air Force Base will present the colors before the Boston Children’s Chorus performs the national anthem. The scheduled flyover will be by two F-15C Eagles from the 104th Fighter Wing out of Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield.
The Red Sox offered no details, but the Super Bowl champion Patriots will have a role in the pregame ceremonies, which are scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. Gates will open at 12:05 p.m.
David Ortiz, who stayed away from the team in spring training, is not expected to be part of the ceremonies or attend the game.
