The Boston Dirt Dogs are reporting that Neal Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" will no longer be played at Fenway Park this season.

Instead, they say, the Red Sox will play this song from Haverhill native Brian Evans.


The Red Sox brass behind this effort, specifically Tom Werner and Dr. Charles Steinberg, are reportedly hoping fans sing this part of the chorus aloud: "Gonna spend the day, over at Fenway. Gonna see them hit that ball ... a mile high. No matter where you sit. You’re in heaven for a little bit. It’s gonna be a great day, At Fenway."  --Boston Dirt Dogs

Before Neil Diamond fans begin jumping off of the Braga Bridge, I put in a call to my contacts at the Red Sox. This appears to just be an April Fools Day joke.
