Red Sox Challenge comes to Town Field
The Boston Red Sox will host a baseball skills session at Town Field in Dorchester on Thursday, July 19. The event, for boys and girls ages 7-14, is part of the annual Red Sox Talks/Fenway Challenge held at various city parks during July and August.
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. followed by the Fenway Challenge, a skills competition in running, hitting and throwing. The winners of each age division in the competition will receive two tickets to a Red Sox game in September and will be recognized on the field before the game. Members of the Red Sox organization will arrive and work one-on-one with each youth on batting and pitching before speaking with the crowd.
