Red Sox Baseball Skills Session at Billings Field on July 6
The 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 during July and August.
Hosted by BCYF in conjunction with the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, the Sox Talks/Fenway Challenges are sponsored by the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Police Activities League.
Registration each day is 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, members of the Red Sox organization will arrive and speak with the crowd. It’s always a surprise who will show up, but there are usually several players, members of the coaching staff and others.
The schedule is as follows: Wednesday, July 6th at Billings Field in West Roxbury; Monday, July 25 at Moakley Park in South Boston; Tuesday, July 26 at Stadium Field in East Boston and Tuesday, August 2 at Jim Rice Field in the South End.
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.
Equipment is provided. For more information or to register a group, please call Mike Devlin at BCYF at 617-635-4920 x2145. Camps and summer programs are welcome to attend – bring your lunch and enjoy a day at the park. Check out other great summer offerings at www.cityofboston.gov/bcyf.
