Finally, everyone's favorite organist, Nancy Faust is only going to be playing at day games in '06. There will be a few exceptions, like opening day, for example.
Generally, she will play only for games that start at or before 3:05 p.m. Sox fans will be listening to prerecorded music for most home games that start at 6:05 or 7:05 p.m. Faust plans to play for the Sunday night home opener against the Indians as well as any postseason games.
