Red Sox announce 2011 Rookie Program participants

The Red Sox announced on Wednesday the 11 players who will participate in the club's annual Rookie Program. Beginning on January 10 and running for two weeks, the program is designed to help acclimate players who could potentially receive a major league call-up during the season with what to expect from the experience and what will be expected from them. The eleven players are:

The program includes two workouts daily that emphasize conditioning and strength training as well as concentration on fundamentals. In addition, the players will attend seminars that focus on the assimilation into major league life off the field and will visit the Dana Faber Cancer Institute to meet with young patients receiving treatments at the Jimmy Fund. They will also participate in a community service project with the Red Sox Foundation at The Children's Services of Roxbury Day Care facility.

A number of individuals will speak to the group, including President/CEO Larry Lucchino, General Manager Theo Epstein, manager Terry Francona, major league coaches Dave Magadan and Curt Young, and Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers.
