Here are a few quick photos from the Red Sox Foundation’s visits to Northeastern University and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center last week. At Northeastern, the Foundation was hosting a fundraiser, and entertaining students with the World Series trophies and mascot, Wally. 

At Beth Israel, this year’s class of Red Sox Scholars was given a tour of a few wings of the hospital, including the NICU and the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery.

I’m late on these, but I wanted to get them up because I thought they were pretty interesting. This year’s class of Red Sox Scholars was given a tour of a few departments at Beth Israel Deaconess hospital, including the NICU and the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery. 

It was neat to see some of the things they showed us, including a breathing, blinking, talking manikin used by medical students to learn surgical techniques. 

The scholars then had a holiday party with games, like the cookie drop above, which made for some hilarious photos. It was also great to have Olympic gold medal judo fighter, Kayla Harrison, at the party.

Not too much to say about this game. Ugly baseball all around led to a Nationals weekend sweep of the Sox.

The pre-game ceremonies looked marvelous, however! Read: Can you tell this was the last game of a homestand?

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: In all seriousness, I was able to shoot from some different angles during those pre-game ceremonies, and was able to get some variety into my shots. I didn’t notice until I went back and did a second look through my edits, but I’m really liking this “Play Ball!” shot. This pre-game was a nice break from the norm, and finding new ways to shoot it is something to keep in mind for upcoming games.
