Speakers include Larry Lucchino, Ben Cherington, John Farrell, Greg Colbrunn, Juan Nieves, and Dana LeVangie along with head athletic trainer Rick Jameyson and therapist Dan Dyrek. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge also will address the group.

The 10 participants this season are RHP Matt Barnes, 3B Garin Cecchini, RHP Dalier Hinojosa, LHP Henry Owens, SS Deven Marrero, RHP Noe Ramirez, RHP Anthony Ranaudo, 1B Travis Shaw, C Blake Swihart, and C Christian Vazquez.

Barnes, Cecchini, Owens, Marreo, Ranaudo, Swihart, and Vazquez are among the top prospects in the organization. Hinojosa, a 27-year-old Cuban, was signed in October for $4.25 million.

Seven players who participated in the program last year — Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Drake Britton, Rubby De La Rosa, Brock Holt, Allen Webster, and Steven Wright — advanced to the majors.
