BOSTON, MA – The City of Boston, Highland Street Foundation, L.L.Bean, and the Boston Red Sox will host the eighth annual “Out of the Park” on Sunday, August 7, on the Boston Common. “Out of the Park” is a free, family-oriented event that brings the Fenway Park experience out to the community. Red Sox alumni and World Series Champions Manny Delcarmen and Lenny DiNardo will be available for autographs and photos with fans.
“Out of the Park” will feature a live viewing of the 2:10 p.m. August 7 Red Sox-Royals game at Kauffman Stadium. The NESN broadcast will be shown on a 16x30-foot video screen in the park, courtesy of a feed provided by Xfinity. NESN will also host their pregame show live from the Boston Common, weather permitting, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
“Out of the Park” will begin at 12:30 p.m. with the Red Sox Mobile Showcase, presented by T-Mobile, bringing a batting cage, pitching accuracy, and other games for families to enjoy. The events will also include many of the signature elements and amenities that can be found in and around Fenway Park and Jersey Street during home games, including balloon artists, yard games and face painters. Red Sox Mascot Wally the Green Monster, his sister Tessie, along with a live DJ will be present throughout the day. Attendees will also have a chance to take rides on the carousel with free vouchers and participate in giveaways. “Out of the Park” includes free food, provided courtesy of Red Sox partners.
The concept for “Out of the Park,” which is supported by Boston Parks & Recreation, was created in 2014 from a shared focus on community building between the City of Boston, Highland Street Foundation, and the Red Sox. The free event is part of the club’s ongoing effort to connect baseball to the next generation of fans.
In addition to L.L.Bean, this year’s “Out of the Park” event is made possible with support from Coca-Cola, Del’s, Dunkin’, Frito-Lay, and Nellie’s Free Range Eggs.
