Photos: Boston’s Marty Walsh Visits Fenway Park.

Today is Opening Day for the 2015 Major League Baseball season! It’s hard to believe the winter is over and the season is back upon us. 

As has been tradition in recent years, Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh, came to Fenway Park this morning to recognize the start of the season and to view recent improvements and additions to the ballpark. 

The walk through also coincided with the opening of ‘Gate K,’ a concourse in the ballpark designated for kids, as well as the announcement of a Historically Black Colleges and Universities game to be played here later this month.

Here are a few moments from the morning!

This morning, the Red Sox Foundation hosted the fifth annual Run to Home Base presented by New Balance 10k race, which brought over 2,600 runners and walkers to Fenway Park to support Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families as they heal from post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.

This was an early morning for me, but I always enjoy shooting this event. These are a few features from the day.
