Boston Red Sox Photos: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 vs. St. Louis Cardinals.

The Red Sox put up 10 runs last night to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals in the first of a two game series. Team defense was solid backing up Rick Porcello on the mound, and was highlighted by a rare 5–4–3 triple play.

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.

Slideshow: Boston Red Sox Celebrate 60 Years with The Jimmy Fund.

In light of the Boston Red Sox recognizing the month of August as ‘Jimmy Fund Month,’ I was asked by the team’s marketing department to put together a photo slideshow highlighting Red Sox partnership with The Jimmy Fund over the past 60 years. 

It’s a basic slideshow, but it’s neat to see how extensive this relationship has been over the years. It’s also a nice collaboration of lots of different photographers to have shot for the Sox through the decades. 

Here is a link to the slideshow on redsox.com. It will also be played on NESN and WEEI during the upcoming Jimmy Fund radio-telethon on August 27th and 28th.

Additional thanks to Sarah Coffin of the Red Sox archives for digging up lots of these older photos.
