And so the roller coaster ride continues!
It's no secret that the 2014 season thus far has had its ups and downs on the field, but there have certainly been some promising signs of late. The Sox have managed to win 8 of the last 10 games, a stretch that's included some great pitching and timely hitting reminiscent of last season. It's also been great to see the continued development of our young guys like Bogaerts, Bradley, and now Christian Vazquez. The 23 year old backstop has won his first five games played, something no catcher in team history has done. And don't forget Brock Holt, who continues to do, well… everything. I think I even saw him fix a printer in the office last week…
Meanwhile, off the field, Calling All Kids Month presented by Hood reaches its final week, but still plenty to look forward to (and not just at Fenway)! This Sunday, our final Out of the Park event will be taking place at the Boston Common. Through our partnership with the Highland Street Foundation and Mayor Marty Walsh, we'll be hosting a huge watch party for the Sox-Rays game with two big screens broadcasting the game. Not only can you watch the game, but you can also get the full Fenway experience on the Common for FREE! There will be Wally, face painting, outdoor games, food, water and ice-cream… again, all for FREE! First pitch is at 1:40 p.m. this Sunday, so stop by the Common on the corner of Beacon and Charles Street to check it all out.
Keep enjoying your summer, and we hope to see you on Sunday!
