The Red Sox today announced topics for the six panel discussions that will take place during the 4th Annual "Baseball Winter Weekend" event at Foxwoods Resort and Casino, which is now sold out with over 6,800 tickets sold, and over 40 current players, alumni, and coaches scheduled to attend.

"The speed with which this event sold out this year is a testament to its growing popularity," said Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy. "With virtually all of our players present, along with our new manager, Alex Cora, no matter how cold it is outside, it feels like spring training is just around the corner. We are thankful to the fans attending who are as eager as we are to get back to baseball."
