Today, thousands of people took to the streets to pay their respects to former Mayor, Thomas Menino, as his funeral procession made its way through the various neighborhoods of Boston. 

It’s no secret that the Mayor was an avid fan of the Red Sox, so as the procession passed by Fenway Park, members of the team’s Front Office lined the sides of Yawkey Way and held Red Sox caps over their hearts as a gesture of thanks. 

Here is a series of photos from earlier today, as well as a few of my favorite moments with the Mayor at Fenway Park during my three years here.

  1. Thank you for these moving images. I needed to see these today. Thank you for including the ones from 2013 and the beginning of the 2014 season. It is so, so wonderful to see a smile on the Mayor’s face on the green grass of Fenway Park.
