“In my position with the Foundation, I’ve had

countless opportunities to engage with kids

throughout all New England states.”

FOR THE KID

H H H

in

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight

our efforts to develop the next generation of Red

Sox fans, so vital to the long-term success of our

franchise. Many of us were kids when we fell in love

with baseball, and feel that the words uttered by

Hall of Famer Ted Williams years ago ring just as

true today: “Baseball’s future? Bigger and bigger,

better and better! No question about it, it’s the

greatest game there is.’’

It is our mission to cultivate the love for this great

game in our children. In 2015, we launched “Calling

All Kids,” a series of programs to develop young

fans with three primary goals: provide greater access

to Red Sox games at Fenway Park; enhance the

entertainment and customer experience for kids at

the ballpark; and celebrate and strengthen the game

of baseball in the community. Perhaps the most

visible symbol of the club’s commitment to youth was

the creation in 2015 of “Gate K (for Kids),” a childfriendly

entrance located adjacent to Gate B leading

into the new Kids Concourse. These programs, we

believe, complement the work we have long done

to promote the game in the community through the

RBI (Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities) program,

our support of Little Leagues throughout the state of

Massachusetts, and teamwork with Mayor Walsh

and the Highland Street Foundation to refurbish

10 ball fields in the City of Boston.

All of Us

H

H H

As the club’s official charity, the Red Sox Foundation continues to surpass the expectations

set forth when it was founded in 2002. In the number of lives it touches, the breadth and

variety of the programs it supports, and the financial contributions that it generates, the

Foundation has set the standard for charitable activity throughout Major League Baseball.

This is merely one facet of our outreach, of course,

but there is a common theme running through all

of what the Red Sox Foundation does in striving to

meet our mission of serving the community. For all

of us, it is a labor of love. We are dedicated to giving

back wherever it is needed most, whether it is to the

kids and adults who need medical treatment, the

students who need a hand realizing college dreams,

or the brave men and women of our military who face

profound mental and physical challenges as they

return to us.

The success of the Foundation wouldn’t be possible

without the tireless efforts of Red Sox partners,

countless volunteers, non-profit organizations,

Red Sox players, coaches, wives and alumni, and

all those who work behind the scenes on behalf

of the Foundation – and, of course, all of you

throughout Red Sox Nation who so generously

offer your time and support.

I speak for everyone in the Red Sox organization

when I say that we couldn’t be more proud of, and

grateful for, the ongoing success of the Red Sox

Foundation. Thank you one and all!

Thomas Werner, Chairman

Boston Red Sox

Dear Friends & Family of Red Sox Nation!

In my 19 years in the Major Leagues, one of my greatest

joys was being able to have an impact on the lives of so

many children.

Whether it was meeting a child at Fenway Park, reaching

out in the community, or visiting patients undergoing treatment

at Dana-Farber, seeing the smiles on kids’ faces always made

me feel truly blessed.

As a ballplayer, it was heartwarming to see how just a small

gesture could make such a lasting memory in the mind of a

youngster. That is why I always tried to make it a priority to

give back to the community, especially one that has given

so much to me.

I’m so grateful to be able to serve as Honorary Chairman of

the Red Sox Foundation. In my position with the Foundation,

I’ve had countless opportunities to engage with kids throughout

all New England states. It’s unbelievable how much they enrich

our lives with stories and dreams that only kids can put

into words.

I am sincerely humbled and proud to be a member of the

Red Sox organization and its fantastic Foundation.

Thanks for your support!

In addition to financial support, the well-deserving

student honorees also receive mentoring,

academic support services and prized moments

of “taking the field” at historic Fenway Park.

YOUTH BASEBALL IN ACTION

• The Boston Area Church League, which the Red Sox and former Mayor Menino created in 2002,

• The Lindos Sueños program, which the Red Sox created with philanthropist Charlene Engelhard in

2004, brings American teens of various backgrounds to the Dominican Republic each summer to

play with their teenage counterparts. Before taking the field each afternoon at the Red Sox academy,

the children collaborate each morning to engage

in community service projects to aid residents.

• Generously funded by global electronics giant

Funai, the Red Sox Foundation brings Japanese

youth to Boston for a 12-day exchange of baseball

and culture. The guests stay with local host families

– an experience that literally transforms their view

of the world and their place in it.

The Red Sox Foundation’s RBI (Reviving Baseball in

the Inner Cities) program gives at-risk youth in urban

neighborhoods an opportunity to learn about non-violent

conflict resolution, resistance to drugs and alcohol, health

and fitness, and educational achievement.

RBI also helps the kids have fun! The program funded

and operated by the Red Sox Foundation provides youth a

chance to go out and play ball. For many kids, it’s their first

opportunity to play baseball, kindling a lifelong love for the

game.

“I would not be where I

am today without RBI.

I’ve had so many opportunities

and now am able to

continue to play the game

I enjoy in college.”

Almost 2,000 children participate each year in the Boston

area RBI and Rookie programs. Boys and girls ages 5 to 11

are on hand at RBI events around the city to share their

baseball experiences and impart valuable life lessons.

Dimock provides essential health services to some

of Greater Boston’s most vulnerable citizens. It’s also

an acknowledged regional leader in the treatment

of people with addictions.

The Red Sox Foundation is proud to join Dimock on

its critical mission. The Foundation’s support to date

has helped Dimock’s after-school programs, GED

preparation, and behavioral health support. Foundation

volunteers and the Red Sox Baseball Operations staff

have also contributed many hours of personal time

and physical support, helping to renovate Dimock’s

children’s facility, homeless shelter, and detox center.

Among community

health centers, Dimock is

PEDRO MARTINEZ

HAILING OUR NEWEST

HALL OF FAMER

H

Pedro Martinez took his rightful place among the

game’s greatest players when he was inducted into the

National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY on

July 26. Based on his extraordinary career, Pedro was

part of an elite group of first-ballot selectees to the Hall.

Pedro was always a Red Sox fan favorite — not only

because of his dominance as a pitcher, but also for

his fun-loving personality, competitive spirit, and

sincere devotion to fans both locally and in his native

Dominican Republic.

Throughout his time in Boston, Pedro could always

be counted on to help out in the community. Since his

retirement, Martinez has spent his time working with his

charitable foundation, The Pedro Martinez and Brothers

Foundation, which he created in 1998. The organization

focuses on providing educational opportunities both in

the classroom and through baseball in the Dominican

Republic and United States. Also, Pedro has participated

in the Red Sox Lindos Sueños program by assisting the

American and Dominican teens with building houses in

impoverished communities as well as giving them some

personal baseball instruction.

Pedro rejoined the Red Sox organization in 2013 and

currently serves as Special Assistant to the President

of Baseball Operations. In 2015, he had his number “45”

retired by the club, the 8th Red Sox player to receive

the honor.

LARRY LUCCHINO

Larry Lucchino served as Red Sox President/CEO during an historic 14-year period through 2015.

His intense competitiveness is a hallmark of his personality, a commitment to what he liked to call

“contest living.’’ But that competitiveness has been matched by a deep compassion for and support

of the Red Sox Foundation, now a philanthropic powerhouse. He is active personally in numerous

civic and charitable efforts of the Foundation including the award-winning Red Sox Scholars program.

A Pittsburgh native who was twice saved by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Lucchino also further

elevated the club’s commitment to the Jimmy Fund. He’s a board member and served as the co-chair

of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s $1 billion “Mission Possible” Capital Campaign, which reached

its goal in 2009.

As he takes on the role of President/CEO Emeritus his contributions to the greater community will

endure forever. And for that, he earns our gratitude.

JOIN OUR TEAM H

Red Sox Foundation volunteers have renovated children’s centers and veterans’ recreation facilities

in our community, sent packages to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, worked at local food

banks and shelters, and assisted local non-profits. Volunteers also help fundraise through game

day raffles and at special team charity events.

In and out of season, the Red Sox Foundation hosts regular volunteer nights.

Learn more about how you can be a member of our charitable team at redsoxfoundation.org
