The entire Red Sox roster, including coaches, has been invited to attend. Red Sox alumni and Wally the Green Monster will also be in attendance.
"Baseball Winter Weekend is an opportunity for fans to hear from and interact with players, alumni, coaches, and members of the Red Sox front office," said Red Sox President Sam Kennedy. "From insightful baseball discussions to lighthearted wiffle ball games, the weekend offers something for fans of every age. With help from our partners at Foxwoods Resort Casino, we look forward to once again providing an opportunity for families to experience a little baseball during the long winter months."
The weekend will begin Friday night with the introduction of the participating players, followed by a fan-interactive Town Hall Meeting. Red Sox Principal Owner John Henry, Chairman Tom Werner, Club President Sam Kennedy, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski, and Manager John Farrell are scheduled to attend. The event will be televised by NESN.
Throughout the day on Saturday, fans will have an opportunity to get autographs and take photos with players, and see the three World Series Trophies and Red Sox artifacts such as Silver Bats, Gold Gloves, MVPs, and Cy Young Awards.
Fans can test their fastball at the Red Sox pitching booth, play wiffle ball on the indoor field, meet Wally the Green Monster, and attend hour-long panel discussions throughout the day on such topics as "The 1986 Team," "The State of the Red Sox - a discussion with Baseball Operations," "Around the Horn - a conversation with Red Sox infielders," and "Battery Mates - dynamics of memorable pitcher/catcher duos."
Fans can watch the live NESN broadcast from Baseball Winter Weekend throughout the day on Saturday, which will include interviews with Red Sox players and leadership. NESN will also invite Winter Weekend attendees to record personalized television highlights of historic Red Sox moments and participate in a casting call for NESN Clubhouse.
Winter Weekend concludes Sunday with a Wally-themed breakfast for children and families, and a series of baseball clinics for kids conducted by Red Sox coaches and alumni. Tickets for Wally's breakfast, which will also include his mascot friends, are available at redsox.com/winterweekend.
