CVS Health and the Boston Red Sox are pleased to partner on the annual CVS Health All Kids Can Baseball Camps at Fenway Park and JetBlue Park. These clinics are an opportunity for children with physical and/or developmental disabilities to take the field at Fenway. In addition, one clinic each season provides an opportunity for military veterans. Each team is given the opportunity to participate in batting practice with the Red Sox hitting coaches, meet Wally the Green Monster, eat lunch in the dugouts and take a VIP tour of Fenway. Later that day, they are invited back to watch the Red Sox take batting practice and to enjoy the game with free tickets in the CVS Family section.
