Support Our Wounded Warriors and Boston Marathon First Responders - At Fenway Park Today at 6:00

"Life Without A Limb Is Limitless"

Our beloved hometown baseball team, the beloved Boston Red Sox, limped out of town early this morning for a flight to the West Coast.  They leave Boston having succumbed last night to the New York Yankees and the much-maligned A-Rod.  While on the Left Coast, they are hoping to cling to their precarious 1-game hold on first place in the AL East Division as they face the strong LA Dodgers and SF Giants.  In their absence, the Red Sox home base of Fenway Park will be well defended.

At 6:00 this evening, Fenway will be the venue for an epic event that will give Bostonians a chance to thank two special kinds of heroes: Wounded Warriors and Boston Marathon First Responders.  

The heralded Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team attended last night's game, and stood along the first base line during the presentation of the colors and the singing of the National Anthem.  Tonight they will take center stage at the plate and on the filed as they face a team comprised of members of the Boston Police Department, Boston Fire Department and Boston EMS.

Please read the Press Release below, and if you are in the area, plan to join me in cheering on these amazing citizens and athletes.  Gates will open at 5:00 at Gate D on Yawkey Way.  Admission is free with voluntary donations going to the First Fund.
