Red Sox Unveil New Kids Concourse Features, Discounted Tickets For Children

The 2016 Boston Red Sox season is just around the corner, and this year will be extra fun for kids.

The Red Sox are beefing up their “Calling All Kids” movement with all sorts of cool new features at the Kids Concourse and Wally’s Clubhouse at Fenway Park. The team also is offering free and discounted tickets for kids and teens and a mobile truck experience that brings Fenway to you.

Virtual reality headsets will be set up at the Kids Concourse and at Wally’s Clubhouse, giving fans access to 360-degree videos from the action of spring training to game preparation at Fenway Park. Wally’s Clubhouse will have a rolling mobile exhibit featuring a miniature fiberglass version of Pesky’s Pole kids can sign with a dry erase marker, a piece of the padded field wall that lines the park, and various compartments with objects for them to feel, including a deconstructed baseball and Fenway Park dirt. Wally’s sister, Tessie, also will be at the Kids Concourse for every home game.

The Red Sox will be involved in the community, too, with their 15- foot Red Sox Mobile Experience presented by T-Mobile truck. The truck has moving panels to recreate the Green Monster, a batting cage, a virtual reality dugout and pitching stations and will start visiting different cities and towns on May 9. The Red Sox also will host hundreds of Little Leaguers at Fenway on Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to noon for an Opening Day event celebrating the start of Little League’s baseball and softball seasons.

And last but not least, entry-level membership in Red Sox Kid Nation will be free, and kids 14 and under can get a free ticket to one game. You can register at beginning Tuesday. The team also is offering $9 tickets for every home game to high school and college students with a valid student ID.
