Official: Red Sox in talks for Fenway NHL game

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox are in discussions with the NHL to hold the next Winter Classic at Fenway Park.

A baseball official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because no deal had been reached, confirmed that Fenway is a site being considered for the next New Year's Day game. In previous years, the outdoor game has been played at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the home of the Buffalo Bills, and the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field.

Red Sox spokeswoman Pam Ganley referred questions to the NHL. A league spokesman said no decision had been made.
