Boston Metro to print baseball daily

Boston Metro has announced a partnership with the Boston Red Sox to produce the official free game day publication for the baseball team called Metro GameDay. The Boston Globe (whose parent, the New York Times Co., owns 49% of Boston Metro) reports that the 12-page free daily will be distributed at all 81 home and postseason games in Boston -- about 15,000 copies per game. In a statement, Charles Steinberg, a Red Sox executive vice president, noted that the "Red Sox Magazine will still be available inside the park with full color photos and more timeless literary features."

The baseball daily will start on April 10, the team's home opener, one week before another free daily, Boston Now, launches.
