Patriots change date of HoF induction ceremony for Tedy Bruschi, Gil Santos

06.18.13 at 3:44 pm ET

On Tuesday, the Patriots announced a new date and time for the team’€™s 2013 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for Tedy Bruschi and Gil Santos.

While originally scheduled for August 11 when the Hall of Fame selection was announced on May 21, the ceremonies will now be held on Monday, July 29, 2013 at 5 p.m. on the NRG Plaza outside The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon. The event will coincide with the team’€™s first in-stadium practice of 2013, which is an annual ticketed event for Patriots season ticket holders and Foxborough residents at Gillette Stadium.

The Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are free and open to the public. Patriots fans of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Following this year’€™s enshrinement ceremonies, Patriots season ticket holders and Foxborough residents will be encouraged to redeem their complimentary event tickets to attend that night’€™s practice inside Gillette Stadium.

Bruschi and Santos will also be honored at the Patriots’€™ regular season home opener when the Patriots host the Jets on Thursday, Sept. 12. With this season’€™s home opener falling on a Thursday night, a Hall of Fame weekend was not possible. As a result, the induction ceremonies were moved to the night of the annual season ticket holder event on July 29.
