Jimmy Fund Fantasy Day at Fenway, July 18th


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

BOSTON – The Red Sox will be on the road but there will be plenty of baseball action at Fenway Park on July 18th as the Jimmy Fund presents the “Ultimate Fan Experience” as well as batting and fielding packages at Jimmy Fund Fantasy Day.

The Ultimate Fan Experience is a chance for people of all ages to enjoy baseball-related activities and entertainment while supporting the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. On the schedule to take place are: contests, a kid zone, tours, photo opportunities, and a skill zone for those who want to showcase their baseball talents.

The Ultimate Fans can also watch those lucky enough to score a spot in the Fantasy Day on-field batting and fielding package, as they try to hit the Green Monster or play the ball off the wall. Committed fans taking part in Jimmy Fund Fantasy day have raised nearly $6 million since it began in 1992.

The Gates will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ultimate Fan Experience tickets are $25 per person for those 12 and over, $15 for children ages 3 to 11 and free for children under three. Family Packages are also available. There are limited spaces left for the fielding and batting packages, which range from $50 to $200, with a fundraising minimum of $700 to $1800, respectively.

To purchase tickets and find additional information, go to
