Boston Red Sox Photos: Tuesday, August 30, 2016 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

Here are some images from last night’s game against Tampa Bay, as well as from the annual WEEI-NESN Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon. This year, that produced some nice candid moments with the team.

I got to follow Boston Red Sox catcher David Ross as he visited young patients at the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston yesterday. 

David was absolutely great with the kids, and it’s always refreshing to see these types of interactions. The team isn’t playing well right now, but seeing some of the real problems some of these young people are dealing with puts things into perspective. 

These were a few moments I liked.

There was a lot going on here at Fenway Park last night before the second of a three game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles. 

As August nears an end, so does Jimmy Fund month sponsored by the Red Sox. Along with WEEI Radio and the New England Sports Network (NESN), the Red Sox raised over $3 million dollars for cancer research in just two days via the Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. As is routine, some of the Red Sox player wives got on the phones yesterday to make calls and accept donations. 

In addition, the team honored Sean Collier, the MIT Police Officer killed during the attacks of the Boston Marathon, by inviting members of his family to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Collier was a regular donor to the Jimmy Fund. 

These are a mix of photos from those two events.

It’s good to be back at Fenway after a few weeks off, particularly during a big series between the Red Sox and the Orioles. I tried to mix it up last night, so I shot from the center field camera well with the 600mm lens that we have here temporarily. I didn’t get much in the way of crazy action, but it’s still refreshing to have a different look.

There are also a few Jimmy Fund photos posted here, as there are lots of ceremonies and recognitions in honor of Jimmy Fund Month at Fenway Park.
