BOSTON (AP) - Singer-songwriter James Taylor has announced a summer tour of four baseball parks, culminating in a date at Fenway Park, home of his beloved Boston Red Sox.

Taylor and his All-Star Band will open the tour July 14 at Nationals Park in Washington. It continues July 17 at Wrigley Field in Chicago; July 29 at AT&T; Park in San Francisco; and Aug. 11 at Fenway.

Bonnie Raitt is scheduled to play at each show.

It will be the third consecutive year Taylor has played Fenway. Taylor was born in Boston and now lives in the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts. Fenway also is where Taylor debuted his video for “Angels of Fenway,” his ode to the redemptive spirit of baseball and a song featured on his 2015 album “Before This World.”

This story has been corrected to shows the ode title begins with Angels, not Angles.
