Groovy Green Livin Red Sox Moms

The Red Sox have been a part of my life since I moved to Boston many years ago. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement.  I’ve been fortunate to experience three World Series wins. The minute my youngest son was born the nurses placed a Red Sox hat on his itty bitty head.

When you live in Boston being a Red Sox fan comes with the territory. Unless of course you’re a Yankees fan.

My Red Sox love began well before we had kids and has evolved over the years into a pretty amazing family bonding experience. We go to games together, watch games together and can all talk the Red Sox talk.

I’m not sure who was more excited when I was invited to be a part of the inaugural Boston Red Sox Moms Club, me, my husband or my kids.

Getting in invite like this is pretty amazing:

On behalf of the Boston Red Sox organization, we invite you to join the #RedSoxFamily as part of the inaugural Red Sox Moms Club.

How cool is that?!

This is the first time any Major League Baseball team has created a blogger network like this. I’m extremely honored and excited to be joining some of my favorite local bloggers in this club.

My duties will include bringing you all sorts of goodies surrounding the Red Sox including event information and other activities happening within the Boston Red Sox organization. Maybe I can sneak in a few ‘green’ requests!

FenwaYoga Event at Fenway Park

The first event was pretty spectacular. I joined a few local bloggers for a preview of FenwayYoga. 

For the second year in a row, the Red Sox Foundation will hold yoga sessions at Fenway Park on Sunday, June 8. “FenwaYoga” will raise funds for two of the foundation’s cornerstone programs, the Red Sox Scholars Program and the RBI Youth Baseball and Softball Programs.

Nothing like looking up at the Budweiser sign in side plank!

  1. Looks like everybody had a lot of fun! It will be interesting to see if other Major League teams will do anything similar, it seems like a great idea.

  2. It was a great event Marsha!So much fun supporting a team that we’ve been rooting for over the years.

  3. […] Spending a good portion of my childhood in Wisconsin, the Badgers have always been a favorite sports team. Once I moved to Boston the Boston Red Sox joined in the fun. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement.  I’ve been fortunate to experience three World Series wins. […]
