Frozen Fenway: BC’s Jerry York Reflects On His Team’s Outdoor Win
By Matt Noonan
BOSTON, Mass. – For the third time in his coaching career, Boston College head coach Jerry York stood between third and second base in Fenway Park’s infield and coached his Alma mater’s hockey team against rival Notre Dame. And similar to his team’s last visit to the historic ballpark in 2012, the Eagles managed to escape the hallowed grounds with a one-goal victory.
After the game concluded, York spoke with the media about the opportunity to participate in outdoor games.
“I thought (during) the summer, ‘Gee, we’re going to have another round,’ but it seems like the players were so excited. The NHL, beside the Winter Classic, has five more (outdoor games this season, which is) a total of six this year, but ours is different because it has always been in the same place the entire time,” said York, who is now 2-1 at Fenway Park.
“(In the NHL), they’re going to Los Angles (or) Ann Arbor, so they haven’t hosted before, but I think its pretty exciting and some how I would like to get the ice as if it were (using) indoor ice and that would be perfect.”
