Red Sox to project memorable images of historic regular season onto buildings and public spaces in Boston and Cambridge

At the conclusion of the regular season after today's game, the Red Sox will execute a five-night "wallscape" installation by projecting portraits of players and moments from the record-setting 2018 regular season onto buildings and in public spaces throughout Boston and Cambridge. 

Beginning tonight, Sunday, September 30, and concluding Thursday, October 4, a series of images depicting the iconic moments of the season will be enlarged and projected between 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in different locations each of the five nights.

At the conclusion of the regular season after today's game, the Red Sox will execute a five-night "wallscape" installation by projecting portraits of players and moments from the record-setting 2018 regular season onto buildings and in public spaces throughout Boston and Cambridge. 

Beginning tonight, Sunday, September 30, and concluding Thursday, October 4, a series of images depicting the iconic moments of the season will be enlarged and projected between 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in different locations each of the five nights.

The series of projections will include Mookie Betts' reaction to his grand slam after his 13-pitch at-bat on July 12 against the Toronto Blue Jays, countless post-game Gatorade moments, Brock Holt celebrating with Andrew Benintendi following the left fielder's walk-off home run on August 6 against the New York Yankees, and Jackie Bradley Jr.'s athletic catch in centerfield Memorial Day weekend.

"This season has been larger than life, and we wanted to come up with a way to take the immensity of the season and amplify it throughout the city," said Red Sox EVP and Chief Marketing Officer Adam Grossman. "We hope this will help galvanize fans and our community as we a head into the postseason." 

The wallscape project is inspired by Erik Jacobs and his #standswithimmigrants campaign that included a projection of David Ortiz's image on the field at Fenway Park. Jacobs will be executing the series of projections on behalf of the Red Sox using images shot by Red Sox photographer Billie Weiss and his team. 

The images will be projected at the following locations, starting with the Boston Common tonight, and concluding at Fenway Park on Thursday, the night before the first game of the Division Series.
