Photos: Red Sox and jetBlue Distribute Over 40,000 Red Sox Hats To Boston Public Schools

As part of the club’s “Calling All Kids” effort to connect baseball to the next generation of fans, and to mark the extension of a partnership that began in 2009, the Red Sox and JetBlue today distributed over 40,000 Red Sox baseball hats to Boston Public School children and staff in 104 schools throughout the City of Boston.

The hat distribution was launched earlier today when Red Sox President Sam Kennedy, Red Sox Foundation Board Member Linda Henry, JetBlue Executive Vice President Martin St. George, and Boston Public Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang joined Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh at the West Zone Early Learning Center and Hennigan School in Jamaica Plain. The group handed out hats to students and surprised kids with a visit from Wally the Green Monster and his sister Tessie.

Here are a few images from the event. It feels good to be back home and in baseball mode again.

Photos: jetBlue Flies Red Sox All-Stars To San Diego.

I’m out here in San Diego, California! Last night, the five members of the Boston Red Sox selected to the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star game flew to San Diego. jetBlue, the official airline of the Boston Red Sox, flew pitcher Steven Wright, shortstop Xander Bogaerts, right fielder Mookie Betts, center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., designated hitter David Ortiz and families to the West Coast.

I was asked to join the flight to document everything happening. This was my first time flying on the team charter with the team, and it was an experience I’ll never forget. I tried to show some behind the scenes moments from the trip without being intrusive to the players and their families. It’s a balancing act, but I think some of these images are pretty neat. 

Stay tuned for more coverage from the All-Star festivities at PETCO Park!
