Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy said in a statement earlier this spring that when the organization learned that so many of the Boston Public Schools were looking to find adequate outdoor spaces to hold their commencement ceremonies, “we knew we could help.”

“After such a challenging year, this important milestone is one that should be celebrated, and we are pleased to be able to offer our venue to help these seniors celebrate their achievements,” he said.
