Mastercard is the preferred payment of the Boston Red Sox and its cardholders will have special opportunities at Winter Weekend. The first 30 guests to purchase Winter Weekend tickets with a Mastercard will be invited to a private meet and greet with Red Sox players and uniformed personnel. In addition, guests who present their Mastercard upon arrival at Winter Weekend will be given priority access and a fast-pass to the autograph corral they have been assigned.
The entire Red Sox roster, including coaches, has been invited to attend Winter Weekend. Red Sox alumni will also be in attendance along with Wally the Green Monster and his sister Tessie.
The weekend will begin Friday night with the introduction of the participating players, followed by a fan-interactive Town Hall Meeting with Red Sox owners and leaders. The event will be televised by NESN on Sunday, January 22, at 8 p.m.
Throughout the day on Saturday, fans will have an opportunity to get autographs and take photos with players, 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 and Tessie, and attend hour-long panel discussions throughout the day on a variety of topics.
Starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, fans can watch the live NESN broadcast from Baseball Winter Weekend throughout the day, which will include interviews with Red Sox players and leadership. NESN will also be hosting auditions for NESN Clubhouse and will be offering a VR experience at this year's event.
Winter Weekend concludes Sunday with a Wally and Tessie-themed breakfast for children and families, and a series of baseball clinics for kids conducted by Red Sox coaches and alumni.
