The Highland Street Foundation created its annual Out of the Park event, in partnership with the Boston Red Sox and Boston’s Parks and Recreation Department. This is a free, family-friendly program that transforms a busy corner of the Boston Common into "Fenway Park." While a Red Sox game is presented live on a big screen, the excitement of Yawkey Way and Fenway Park is recreated with free food and fun activities, when the Boston Red Sox face the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, June 15. The event starts at 2:30 pm, but the first pitch will be at 4:05 pm. NESN Pregame will be hosting live at the Boston Common.

"Out of the Park attendees get a chance to meet Red Sox mascot Wally, savor Fenway Franks and other ballpark treats, hear from the Hot Tamales Brass Band, and enjoy activities like face painting, caricatures, balloon art, and baseball-themed games." - Highland Street Foundation

Highland Street Foundation has also teamed up with the Parks and Recreation Department and the Red Sox to renovate youth baseball fields throughout Boston. Fields receive improvements including fresh clay, privacy screens on backdrops, sod cutting, new grass, and lining. A few of the parks even receive replica Green Monster walls.
