456 sell-outs at Fenway Park
This really cute kid just above is Kevin Pierro, a 5 year-old Red Sox fan from Norfolk, MA who was born at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center on May 15, 2003. The significance of that day is that it was when the record Red Sox 456 sold-out game streak began. Kevin was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at last night's game.
The four other kids shown above Kevin were also born that day at BIDMC and are shown ready to yell "Play ball!" at the start of the game. From the left, they are Christian Trodden, Teddy English, Michael Gunning, and Abigail Weiss. (The photos were taken by Will Nunnally from the Red Sox.)
May I point out, too, that BIDMC became the official hospital of the Red Sox in April, 2003. Query to John Henry, Tom Werner, and Larry Lucchino (shown above): Any connection?
