Red Sox launch "Wally's Math Academy" for elementary and middle school-aged students

As part of the club's ongoing effort to reach a younger generation of fans, the Red Sox today launched a new, online program designed to engage elementary and middle school-aged students by using real statistics from Red Sox games to teach math in the classroom. 

The new program, "Wally's Math Academy," replaces generic word problems with actual game data. It also includes video recaps of Red Sox games and photos of players. The program is designed to initially engage kids in 2nd through 4th grades and will be expanded and enhanced in the coming years.

Wally's Math Academy was previewed to about 100 Boston Public Schools teachers before last night's Red Sox-Orioles game, and with the help of Wally and Tessie, rolled out to middle school students earlier today at the Trotter Innovation School in Dorchester. 

"We've been working on this program for a few years now, and are excited to finally share it with students and teachers," said Red Sox EVP/CMO Adam Grossman. "We hope the daily exposure to Red Sox games and players through math will help build a greater connection to the team at an early age, provide a fun way for kids to hone their math skills, and help us engage and cultivate a community of educators." 

Wally's Math Academy is hosted on a platform called Training Camp developed by TrueMedia Networks, a sports analytics firm that provides research platforms for teams, leagues, and media partners.  

Wally's Math Academy is free to educators. They can sign up by visiting redsox.com/wallysmathacademy

Red Sox mourn the passing of Lee Stange

Former Red Sox pitcher, instructor, coach helped lead Boston to AL pennant during 1967 "Impossible Dream" season

BOSTON, MA - The Boston Red Sox mourn the loss of Lee Stange, who passed away on Friday at the age of 81. A member of Boston's 1967 "Impossible Dream" team, Stange spent nearly 40 years in professional baseball, including 23 as a player, coach, and instructor in the Red Sox organization.

Born on October 27, 1936 in Chicago, IL, Stange began his 14-year playing career in 1957, reaching the major leagues in 1961 with the Minnesota Twins. The right-hander pitched in 359 big league games and made 125 starts over 10 seasons with the Twins (1961-64), Cleveland Indians (1964-66), Red Sox (1966-70), and Chicago White Sox (1970), going 62-61 with 21 saves and a 3.56 ERA.

After posting a 3.35 ERA in 28 games (19 starts) for the Red Sox in 1966, Stange was a key contributor during the club's 1967 "Impossible Dream" season that saw Boston win its first American League pennant in 21 years. Known as "The Stinger," he threw 181.2 innings over 24 starts and 11 relief appearances that season, going 8-10 with a 2.77 ERA. His lone postseason appearance came in Game 3 of the World Series at St. Louis, as he pitched 2.0 innings in relief and did not allow an earned run.

Stange retired as a player at the age of 33 following the 1970 season and returned to the Red Sox organization, first as a minor league instructor in 1971. He joined the major league club's staff as a pitching coach from 1972-74 and returned to the same role from 1981-84, after serving as a coach and instructor in the Twins and Oakland A's organizations from 1975-80. During his second stint on Boston's major league coaching staff, Stange helped in the development of such Red Sox pitchers as Dennis Eckersley and Roger Clemens.

Following the 1984 season, Stange returned to the Red Sox minor league system and served as a coach and instructor for 10 seasons. After leaving professional baseball, he worked as a pitching coach at Florida Institute of Technology for nine seasons before retiring at age 78. In August 2017, Stange returned to Fenway Park for the 50-year reunion of the "Impossible Dream" team.

Stange is survived by his wife, Barbara; his children, Tim, Jim, and Jana; his two step children, Paul Reed and former Red Sox infielder Jody Reed; and his six grandchildren.

Per Stange's request, no funeral service will be held.

Dana-Farber Pediatric Patients join Fenway's Bullpen Buddies, Celebrate 68 Years with Red Sox

After 68 years of partnership between the Boston Red Sox's charitable Red Sox Foundation and the Jimmy Fund, a charity supporting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, patients from the Jimmy Fund Clinic received a unique honor that most Bostonians spend their whole lives only dreaming about: Fenway Park Field Access. 

As part of the Bullpen Buddies charity initiative, sponsored by IBEW Local 103 and NECA, Dana-Farber pediatric patients stood on the field of the oldest, most beloved Major League ballpark in America and cheered on the Red Sox during their batting practice. 

The Red Sox Foundation has worked closely with Dana-Farber and its revered Jimmy Fund for decades, partnering to raise money for cancer research and treatment for adults and children. 

Throughout the Red Sox batting practice, Jimmy Fund Clinic patients were greeted at the bullpen by some hometown heroes: players of the Boston Red Sox. After getting autographs from their new friends, patients and their families then stayed to watch the Red Sox match up against the Toronto Blue Jays, together enjoying America's favorite pastime in America's favorite park. 

IBEW Local 103 and NECA also provided each of the young visitors with IBEW Local 103 t-shirts, Red Sox hats, a baseball, and other Red Sox merchandise in a complimentary swag bag as part of the experience. 

"Bullpen Buddies is a really special initiative, and we're proud to play a part in making such a positive, lasting memory for local youth," said Lou Antonellis, Business Manager of IBEW Local 103. "That's what this partnership with the Sox is all about: working together for our community." 

The members of IBEW Local 103 and NECA have been servicing Fenway Park for over 100 years. Now, IBEW Local 103 members, along with the union contractors of NECA, have forged a broader partnership with the Boston Red Sox that will help power a number of key charitable initiatives. In addition to Bullpen Buddies, these initiatives include the recent Baseball Tomorrow Fund Equipment Drive and an expansion of the "Helmets to Hardhats" program that helps returning military service veterans find rewarding, family-sustaining careers in the construction trade industry.

"Generations of Red Sox players, staff, and fans have raised millions for cancer treatment and research for the Jimmy Fund. We're excited to celebrate our partnership, which is the oldest and most extensive team-charity relationship in professional sports. There isn't a better way to celebrate that than to give our young patients the chance to meet their favorite players on the field at Fenway Park," said Jimmy Fund spokesperson Molly McHale. "We can't thank IBEW and NECA enough for choosing The Jimmy Fund for what was a special day for patients and their families." 

About the Jimmy Fund: The Jimmy Fund solely supports Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community fundraising events.

Suero, 21, played for three Rookie-level clubs in 2018, contributing to each of the Red Sox' Dominican Summer League affiliates and the Gulf Coast League team. The right-hander combined to allow just nine earned runs over 52.0 innings pitched, posting a 1.56 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, and .177 opponent batting average while striking out 49 hitters compared to just eight walks. He made 10 starts and four multi-inning relief appearances, holding his opponents to zero earned runs in nine of his outings and only one earned run in three others. 

Brasier, 31, was selected to the Red Sox' major league roster on July 8 and has remained with the club ever since, leading Sox relievers in that time with 27.1 innings pitched, a 1.65 ERA (5 ER), a 0.88 WHIP, and a .513 opponent OPS. The right-handed reliever has held opponents scoreless in 22 of his 27 appearances, helping the team to a 22-5 record in his outings.

Holt was recently named a 2018 nominee by Major League Baseball for the Roberto Clemente Award, a recognition given to a player who best represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement. 

Since arriving in Boston, Holt has supported the Red Sox and the Red Sox Foundation's charitable efforts, continuously leading the team in community appearances, including meet-and-greets with fans, baseball clinics with kids, and the donation of unique experiences for Red Sox Foundation auctions.   

Holt is best known for his close relationship with the Jimmy Fund and helping to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute with its mission to raise funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research. He was first introduced to the Jimmy Fund in 2013 when he met patients at the clinic during his rookie development training. Holt has been an advocate and ambassador for the charity in his role as Red Sox Jimmy Fund Captain since 2015, and earlier this season, began a ticket program, "Brock Stars," that hosts Jimmy Fund patients and families at Fenway Park every Tuesday home game.  

In 2015, Holt was named the BoSox Club's "Man of the Year," and in 2016, he received the Tim Wakefield Community Service Award at the Boston Baseball Writer's Dinner.

The Roberto Clemente Award winner will be selected by a panel that includes Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr., representatives from MLB-affiliated networks (MLB Network, FOX Sports, ESPN and TBS) and MLB Advanced Media, as well as Roberto's late wife Vera Clemente. Fan voting for the award winner is open now through Tuesday, September 18 on mlb.com/clemente21.

Rodriguez, 25, threw 4.0 scoreless innings in each of his two rehab assignment starts for Portland, allowing just three hits while striking out 14 batters.

Over parts of four major league seasons for the Red Sox (2014, '16-18), the Puerto Rican catcher has hit .249 (219-for-878) with 10 home runs in 271 games.
