I’ve been busy out on the road with the Red Sox contingent lately. We’ve been all over New England, spreading the World Series cheer to schools, community centers, arenas, hospitals, stores, and everything in between.

It’s been a nice opportunity to see some of these places and small towns that I otherwise wouldn’t get the chance to see, and to meet some very friendly and interesting people. 

You can also see the effect these trophies have on those who are less fortunate or are struggling at the moment. It seems like these quick moments can go a long way.

I’ve been busy over the last several weeks out on the road with Red Sox players, coaches, and personnel, who have been making World Series trophy visits as part of the Red Sox Holiday Caravan to various locations throughout New England.

It’s been lots of fun to follow the trophies around and to document the guys as they do their part to spread some cheer this holiday season. These are the highlights from some of those visits, as well as from Christmas at Fenway last weekend.

Happy Holidays!

I shot several events over the weekend as the Boston Red Sox recognized Veteran’s Day. The first was a visit to the New England Center for Homeless Veterans of Boston, where we volunteered by serving dinner and displaying the 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies.The second was a military brunch at Fenway Park recognizing the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. 

These were both great events, and I was honored to be a part of them. It’s nice to see how baseball can bring people from other walks of life, such as the military, together.

In honor of Fenway Park’s 100th Anniversary, the Boston Red Sox have put together a “100 Acts of Kindness” program with various non-profit organizations throughout the season. As part of that initiative, various Red Sox alumni, as well as the Red Sox mascot Wally, will be visiting various Veterans  hospitals throughout New England this week.

I rode along on yesterday’s visit to Manchester, New Hampshire.

This assignment was certainly different in tone than most of what we shoot, but an important reminder of the emotion, compassion, and excitement that professional sports can sometimes bring out in people. Lots of the patients were struggling, some of them terminally ill even, but it was incredible to see their spirits lift so quickly  at the sight of those two World Series trophies and the big, smiling, furry green guy. It’s days like these where I’m reminded of the bigger picture.

More to come this week as we continue our visits.
