The screenings, presented by Banana Boat, the official sunscreen of the Boston Red Sox, will take place in the Champions Club (located in the Kids Concourse) from 12:05 p.m. through the 7th inning.
Dermatologists from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the American Academy of Dermatology will be on site for the screenings. All participating fans will receive a free sample size Banana Boat sunscreen and free samples will also be available at Fan Services booths and the First Aid station.
