FOR THE KID
H H H
All of Us
“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
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
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
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

HAILING OUR NEWEST
HALL OF FAMER
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
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”

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.
