Photos: Little League Opening Day at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox hosted hundreds of Little Leaguers at Fenway Park over the weekend for an Opening Day event that celebrate the start of Little League’s baseball and softball season. Mayor Martin J. Walsh attended the event, which also included a special ceremony with opening remarks from Red Sox Chairman, Tom Werner, and former Red Sox players Steve Lyons and Sam Horn.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation hosted the Badges for Baseball summer camp today at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, Maryland. The mentoring program, which teaches life lessons through baseball, brings law enforcement personnel together with underprivileged children.

This assignment was quick, straightforward, and exactly what I expected. Because the success of an event depends so greatly on the PR put out by those involved, answers for interviews tend to be rather generic or obvious.

I think that was noticeable with this assignment, and that’s why I had the most fun talking to the kids.

They were candid.

The two boys from Houston just kept babbling about the plane ride to Baltimore and Bill Ripken’s floppy hat, for example.
