There is some exciting kids & 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) 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 it’s like to be a Red Sox player during the 2016 season. Very cool! The virtual reality stations will be available to kids in Wally’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 game you know the little ones can take a break at Wally’s Clubhouse. A few, fun new things this year include:
- A rolling mobile exhibit will feature a miniature fiberglass version of Pesky’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 Wally’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 (Wally’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.
