The Red Sox brought baseball clinics and elements of Fenway Park to Dorchester and Roxbury.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in collaboration with the Boston Area Church league, the Red Sox hosted a community event at Walsh Park. The event featured Juneteenth-themed giveaways, an ice cream truck, and games. It also included a mobile vaccination site, and the first 100 people to receive vaccinations at the event were given two free tickets to a Red Sox game.
Later in the day, the Red Sox were slated to partner with MBK617 to host baseball clinics for approximately 100 youth of color between the ages of 5 and 12 at Orchard Park in Roxbury.
The Red Sox plan to fly the Juneteenth flag above Fenway Park throughout the weekend.
