Fenway Batting Practice

Hello All!

I hope that all of you are doing well, as it may have been a long time since we have last spoke, but today, you all came to mind. Currently, I am attending Boston College where I will graduate in 2014. This summer, I interned in the front office of the Boston Red Sox, where I learned about the business end of a successful sports franchise. I worked extremely hard, and loved what I did. At the end of the internship, my bosses, along with Red Sox executives and ownership asked me to keep working. I love what I do, and I am getting the best of both worlds; a great education and hands on corporate experience.

Today we had employee batting practice, where each employee was able to hit on the field at Fenway Park, something that is so rare, you literally cannot pay to do it. I always knew that I could hit a home run at Fenway, but I never thought I would get the chance. Once I heard of this treat, my competitive edge kicked in, and I was determined to reach my goal. So today, I put two balls over the Green Monster, and I wanted to share these pictures with you. I haven’t swung a bat since my last game of senior year against Tabor, so it could have gone much worse. The first picture is some damage to a seat in foul territory down the third base line. Thank you all for helping me reach my goals, in more ways than one….it hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.
