Boston Red Sox announced on Monday that Fenway Park would be open for 100 percent full capacity for fans in time for Memorial Day weekend.

“Thank you, @MassGovernor, for your leadership in allowing us to safely open Fenway Park,” a tweet from the Major League Baseball club in Massachusetts. The post was noted by Fox News.

“A year ago, the governor and his team set forth a roadmap for the safe reopening of the commonwealth,” the post read. “It is because of the administration’s steadfast leadership and intentional planning that we are now able to lift restrictions and limits put into place over 15 months ago to keep our community safe.”

“We are thankful to @MayorKimJaney for the opportunity to welcome fans home,” it read.

“Can’t wait to welcome you home!” a final tweet from the Red Sox read, along with a link about where fans can get tickets.

The outlet noted, the club will be one of the first MLB teams to play to a full house. The Texas Rangers played to a packed 100% capacity stadium for its home opener and the Atlanta Braves were the first baseball team to go to full capacity full-time on May 7.
