Last week, The Boston Red Sox visited local hospitals, schools, and community centers as part of their annual Holiday Caravan. This year, Red Sox infielder Deven Marrero, and pitchers Robby Scott and Heath Hembree joined the Caravan, which stopped at Codman Academy School in Dorchester, Massachusetts General Hospital, Shriners Hospital For Children, The Jimmy Fund, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, and The BASE.
This is always a great showing of community outreach from the players and organization. Here are a few photos from the two day event.
Last week, the Red Sox hit the road for their annual Holiday Caravan, which brings players to local hospitals and community centers to visit patients and kids.
Pitchers Noe Ramirez and Robbie Ross Jr. and infielder Deven Marrero participated this year. They were also accompanied for a few of the stops by newly acquired all-star reliever, Craig Kimbrel.
Over the two days, we visited Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Medical Center, and the Base, a baseball training center for urban youth.
This is a long few days for everyone involved, but it’s a nice thing that the team does, especially at this time of year. I always think it really makes a difference, no matter how cliché that sounds.
Here are some photos.
Every year, several Boston Red Sox players and coaches take part in a Holiday Caravan, during which they visit various hospitals and community centers to share some holiday cheer.
This year, infielder Garin Cecchini and pitchers Steven Wright and Heath Hembree were on the caravan, and made stops at six different hospitals: The Jimmy Fund, Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Shriners Hospital For Children, Mass General Hospital, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Center. They also visited The Base inner city baseball clinic and the Four Seasons Hotel.
It’s always a great experience spending days on the road with the players. Thanks to Garin, Steven, and Heath, three great guys, for their time and for posing for so many photos over the two days.
It was also nice to have a quick byline in the Boston Herald from the trip.
I’ve been busy over the last several weeks out on the road with Red Sox players, coaches, and personnel, who have been making World Series trophy visits as part of the Red Sox Holiday Caravan to various locations throughout New England.
It’s been lots of fun to follow the trophies around and to document the guys as they do their part to spread some cheer this holiday season. These are the highlights from some of those visits, as well as from Christmas at Fenway last weekend.
