Lacrosse Team Head Coach Throws Out First Pitch At Fenway.

Merrimack College Men's Lacrosse Team Head Coach Mike Morgan threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway surrounded by his 2018 NCAA Division II National Champion team.

Men’s Lacrosse Coach Mike Morgan threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Red Sox’ Aug. 28 game against the Miami Marlins at Fenway Park.

Morgan was surrounded by his 2018 NCAA Division II National Champion team, on the feast day of Merrimack College’s patron, St. Augustine.

The honor of throwing out the first pitch recognized the championship, which it earned by beating St. Leo (Fla.) University 23-6 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass May 27.

“It was an unbelievable experience for our program and we couldn’t be more honored and thankful to the Red Sox organization for extending the invitation to throw out last night’s first pitch,” Morgan said.

“To be able to put a bow on our historic season in that fashion was beyond incredible and hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to be back at Fenway in the future.”

The team spent about 20 minutes on the field before the first pitch, receiving a loud round of applause from the crowd of nearly 37,000 people before watching the game from the stands.
