Red Sox Kids Club Unveiled

Kid Friendly Improvements at Fenway

The Red Sox unveiled the Red Sox Kids Club, including new Gate K (for Kids) entrance to Fenway Park with Mayor Martin J. Walsh during his first preseason walkthrough of the ballpark since becoming Mayor of the City of Boston. I was able to tag along and learn about all of the off season improvements to Fenway Park.

New Kid Space

As I mentioned in this post, there is a new Kids Concourse area and Wally’s Clubhouse (the former Champions Club) at Fenway with a dedicated Kid Crew staff, which features new attractions for young fans like video games, toss games, tables to color, building blocks and more, including a six-foot nine-inch-tall Wally bobblehead, and an interactive video wall for fans to take photos.

New Seating

Additionally, Fenway has 174 new seats in the Bleachers, State Street Pavilion, and EMC levels of the ballpark. Space for 28 new seats in the Bleachers came from relocating the centerfield camera platform from the bottom of the Bleachers to a new, elevated camera basket beneath the Bank of America video board. The change restores the original configuration of the Bleachers before the camera platform was added in the early 1970s.

By extending the State Street Pavilion and EMC Levels towards the Fisk Pole in left field, the club has added 112 State Street Pavilion Reserved seats on the Coca Cola Deck and a 34-person party suite, called the Infiniti Suite, on the EMC Level. This new suite will be leased on a game by game basis. Behind the State Street Pavilion Reserved seating section, a new private outdoor group space, the Lansdowne Pavilion, has been added for groups of 10-16 people.

Swanky Space

The Budweiser Right Field Roof Deck received a complete refresh for the 2015 season. The space now features a new fully-functional bar and dining area – the Budweiser Brew House – that will provide a wider variety of drink offerings and specialty food items only available at this location. New lounge seating areas with additional televisions have been created throughout the space and will include waiter/waitress service. All fans will have access to the Budweiser Brew House, regardless of ticketed seat location.

Other Additions

Some other fun things to note. Visiting teams have new designated workout room vs. one workout room that both teams had to share at designated times. There are also two new 30” high x 39.3’ wide LED ribbon boards have been installed by ANC Sports on the State Street Pavilion level fascia, and the club is also in the process of expanding Fenway Park’s WiFi and cellular network to give all fans access to coverage inside the ballpark.

Nursing Stations

New Mothers’s Rooms are dedicated to those who need nursing stations, including a pod presented by Cleanwell. Three locations include the Kids Concourse; Level 2 at the top of the grandstand behind home plate; and Level 5 behind the State Street Pavilion Box.

Kid Food

Back to the family friendly focus of Fenway, there is a new $5 kids meals that will be available in the new Kids Concourse, including peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Goldfish, and a small juice, as well as bite-sized menu items like mini pigs in a blanket, corn dogs, fried Oreo mini churro bites, and fried apples.

There are also new kid-themed souvenir items, which include a Wally ice-cream tray, cotton candy on a novelty bat, and a glove-shaped tray with nachos or chicken fingers.

Healthy options such as fruit cups, Tribe hummus, and string cheese were also on hand and will be available throughout the season.

Since 2002, over $300 million has been invested in the improvement of Fenway Park, with a big focus this past two years on kids and families.
