Saturdays are for...

Sox fans! That's right. This Saturday isn't just for the boys! It's for all those who enjoy watching America's favorite pastime. Thanks to the City of Boston, Highland Street Foundation, and team, you can watch the Sox take on the Yankees this Saturday, August 12th right on the Boston Common!

The organizations are partnering up to host the fourth annual “Out of the Park” party! This event is a free, family-friendly program that transforms a busy corner of the Boston Common into Fenway Park. While a Red Sox game is presented live on a big screen, the event aims to recreate the excitement of Yawkey Way and Fenway Park with ballpark food classics and fun activities.

"Out of the Park" attendees will have a chance to meet Red Sox mascot Wally, savor Fenway Franks and other ballpark treats, hear from the Hot Tamales Brass Band, and enjoy activities like face painting, caricatures, balloon art, and baseball-themed games. A perfect Saturday for the kids!

The Highland Street Foundation has also teamed up with the Parks and Recreation Department and the Red Sox to renovate youth baseball fields throughout Boston with help from the proceeds of this event. Fields receive improvements including fresh clay, privacy screens on backdrops, sod cutting, new grass, and lining. A few of the parks even receive replica Green Monster walls. How amazing is that?
