Photos: Boston Red Sox Host CVS Hitting Clinic.

Today, the Boston Red Sox and CVS welcomed Veterans to Fenway Park for a special afternoon of batting practice on the field with Red Sox coaches and staff. 

The group was also joined by a team of Navy SEALS, who parachuted into the park as a practice run for a pre-game ceremony they’ll be doing before tonight’s game against the Houston Astros.

What a scene! It was fun to photograph as a prelude to the weekend’s July 4th festivities. More to come soon!

This afternoon, I photographed a CVS Hitting Clinic, a program that happens regularly here at Fenway Park. Each year, the Boston Red Sox and CVS Caremark partner on the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Baseball Camp, which gives children with physical and/or developmental disabilities the opportunity to play baseball on the field at Fenway. 

Today, the participants took batting practice with Red Sox batting coach, Greg Colbrunn, and took pictures and received autographs from Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster.

A nice event on a beautiful summer day here in Boston.
