Photos: Mayor Walsh and Red Sox Unveil New Batting Cage at Boston Centers for Youth & Families.

Boston Mayor Walsh and the Boston Red Sox Foundation formally unveiled the first of four indoor batting cages that will be installed in 2017 at Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) community centers throughout the City of Boston. The batting cage installation is made possible by a grant from Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association’s (MLBPA) Youth Development Foundation.

This event was exactly what you would expect from a ribbon cutting photo wise, but it’s a great initiative that the Red Sox have partnered with. I grew up playing baseball, and was always lucky enough to have indoor batting cages to hit in year-round. This project begins giving that same access to kids in the city of Boston, even in the cold winter months. Any young baseball player deserves that!
