There is some exciting kids &Â family initiatives for the Red Sox season at Fenway Park! On the top of the list is of course free tickets for kids & student discount tickets. Entry-level membership in Red Sox Kid Nation (children 14 and under)Â will be free, and every child in the program can attend a game for free. You can begin signing up for the membership and free tickets HERE.
New this year for the first time, the club will offer a virtual reality experience at Fenway Park through a series of 360 videos that give exclusive, all-access views of what itâ€™s like to be a Red Sox player during the 2016 season. Very cool! The virtual reality stations will be available to kids in Wallyâ€™s Clubhouse and to all fans in the Kids Concourse and the videos will also be available to fans online too.
Coming to a neighborhood near you debuting the week of May 9th – Be on the lookout for the Red Sox Mobile Truck. The Red Sox will take Fenway Park on the road with a new mobile truck that will bring the ballpark experience to communities throughout New England. The Red Sox Mobile Experience presented by T-Mobile features a 15-foot truck with panels that move to remake the Green Monster wall. The truck will carry a batting cage, virtual reality dugout, and pitching stations to dozens of cities and towns during the 2016 season.
If you have been to a gameÂ you know the little ones can take a break at Wallyâ€™s Clubhouse. A few, fun new things this year include:
- A rolling mobile exhibit will feature a miniature fiberglass version of Peskyâ€™s Pole that youngsters can sign with a dry erase marker, a piece of the padded field wall that lines the infield and outfield, and various compartments with objects for them to feel, such as a deconstructed baseball and Fenway Park dirt.
- Miniature lockers staged to look just like the ones in the Red Sox clubhouse will be installed in Wallyâ€™s Clubhouse, and an oversized trunk filled with authentic Red Sox jerseys, cleats, and batting gloves will be available for kids to play dress up!
- The Red Sox will also host a comprehensive clinic later in the season for kids who want to learn how to score the game.
- At the end of Spring Training, Tessie the Green Monster (Wallyâ€™s sister) will take her place in the Kids Concourse where she will be a permanent staple before and during Red Sox home games throughout the season.
Disclosure: I am part of the Red Sox Moms initiatives and as such was treated to a luncheon and goody bag and got to hear all about the great venues that the Red Sox and Fenway Park has to offer.
