RED SOX TALKS/FENWAY CHALLENGE COME TO EAST BOSTON THE 26TH
Get Individual Hitting And Pitching Tips From Sox Players And Coaches
Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) invite Boston youth to meet players and coaches from the Boston Red Sox organization and compete in a baseball skills session at the annual Red Sox Talks/Fenway Challenge on Tuesday, July 26th at East Boston Stadium in East Boston.
Hosted by Boston Centers for Youth & Families in conjunction with the Boston Parks Department, the Sox Talks/Fenway Challenges are sponsored by the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Police Activities League. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. followed by the Fenway Challenge, a skills competition in running, hitting and throwing for boys and girls ages 7-14. At the completion of the Fenway Challenge around 12:30 p.m., members of the Red Sox organization will arrive and work one-on-one with each young person on their batting and pitching skills. It’s always a surprise who will show up, but there are usually several players, members of the coaching staff and others.
The winners of each Fenway Challenge competition will receive two tickets to a Red Sox game in September and will be recognized on the field before the game. Camps and summer programs are welcome to attend. Please contact mike.devlin@cityofbostongov to reserve a spot.
