Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Opening Day Vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

We’re underway again at Fenway Park! This week’s Opening Day was my seventh with the Red Sox, and ninth in Major League Baseball. I’m getting old.

As Opening Days go, this was a good one. The Red Sox came from behind to beat the Tampa Bay Rays on a walk-off hit by Hanley Ramirez in the twelfth inning.

Before the game, the team welcomed Winter Olympians and Paralympians from the New England region in a moving pre-game ceremony, which included a special appearance by David Ortiz.

Here are the photos from the game.

Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh previewed the offseason improvements to Fenway Park during an annual pre-Opening Day tour of the ballpark led by Red Sox President Sam Kennedy, Red Sox Executive Vice President Jonathan Gilula, and with Red Sox Principal Owner John Henry and Red Sox Foundation Board Member Linda Henry. The visit highlighted the expansion of both the Home and Visitor’s dugouts, the addition of new seats between and outside the dugouts, a new bar and terraced seating area in Right Field, new day-of-game suites, an expanded virtual reality station that includes a batting cage experience, and a number of new concession offerings managed by Aramark, Fenway Park’s concessionaire.

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.

Boston Mayor Walsh and the Boston Red Sox Foundation formally unveiled the first of four indoor batting cages that will be installed in 2017 at Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) community centers throughout the City of Boston. The batting cage installation is made possible by a grant from Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association’s (MLBPA) Youth Development Foundation.

This event was exactly what you would expect from a ribbon cutting photo wise, but it’s a great initiative that the Red Sox have partnered with. I grew up playing baseball, and was always lucky enough to have indoor batting cages to hit in year-round. This project begins giving that same access to kids in the city of Boston, even in the cold winter months. Any young baseball player deserves that!

Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox announced that Fenway Park will play host to the sport of Hurling this fall as part of the AIG Fenway Hurling Classic & Irish Festival. The Irish sport is returning to Fenway Park for the first time since 1954. 

I know nothing about this game, but it seems like it will be something interesting and different to photograph! Here are a few quick snaps from yesterday’s press conference announcement.

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!
