BOSTON (AP) - A Norman Rockwell painting of Boston Red Sox players will be at Fenway Park with two of its subjects before it is taken to New York City to be auctioned.
The painting appeared on the cover of the March 2, 1957, issue of the Saturday Evening Post. The title is: ''The Rookie (Red Sox Locker Room).'' Christie's is offering it May 22 with a pre-sale estimate of $20 million to $30 million.
The painting shows pitcher Frank Sullivan, right fielder Jackie Jensen, catcher Sammy White, second baseman Billy Goodman and Hall of Famer Ted Williams.
On Monday, Sullivan and the model for the rookie, Sherman Safford, will be with the painting at Fenway.
Its present owner acquired it in 1986.
