Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Rookie Development Program.

This week, ten of the Boston Red Sox top prospects are taking part in the 2018 Rookie Development Program, a week long program which focuses on easing their transition into becoming major league players with the Red Sox.

Here are some photos of their appearances throughout the week, which included a mural painting outing at the Dimock Center in Roxbury as part of the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, a visit to patients at Boston Children’s Hospital, and a workout at Boston College.
