Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez thanks, inspires BGCL youth members

August 19, 2019

On August 16, 2019, Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez met with Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence youth members who customized his New Balance cleats for Players' Weekend.

After asking the boys who designed the cleats to sign them, Eduardo participated in games of wiffle ball and dodge ball and a Q&A with all the club kids. We're grateful to Red Sox photographer Cameron Pollack for sharing these amazing photos, and for newscaster Guerin Austin's thoughtful coverage!

The Red Sox captured the visit in this video:
