The Boston Red Sox and the Red Sox Foundation have joined forces with ABKCO Records to create the commemorative album, 100 Year Anniversary of Fenway Park. I had the opportunity to attend the Hard Rockin’ Red Sox CD release party on Thursday morning at the Hard Rock Café in Boston. Dr. Charles Steinberg hosted the event, and Red Sox president and CEO, Larry Lucchino talked about the album and the importance of the Red Sox players showing their appreciation for Red Sox Nation and the Red Sox Foundation in the community of Boston. Players Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Daniel Bard and Darnell... Continue reading

Jonathan Papelbon has shipped out to Philadelphia, so "Shipping Up to Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys -- the closer's notorious entrance song -- is no longer played throughout the Fenway Park PA system. That leaves "Sweet Caroline" as one of Fenway's sing-a-longs. But a few months into the 2012 season, some new Fenway favorites have emerged. Below is a complete list of the 2012 Red Sox at-bat songs and pitcher entrance music. Sarah McKenna (vice president of fan services and entertainment), John Carter (director of Red Sox Productions) and the Red Sox DJ, TJ Connelly, reserve the right to overrule... Continue reading

Heading into the 2012 season, Daniel Bard was making the jump from the bullpen to the rotation and said he needed to prepare a pregame routine, a necessity for some starting pitchers. Over a month into the regular season, he's got a routine down. Bard spends a half hour outside shagging balls during batting practice because he likes to get comfortable with the weather conditions. He then returns to the clubhouse, puts on his uniform and heads to the training room. While getting stretched out in the training room, he listens to a playlist on his phone titled "Domination Playlist,"... Continue reading

As you all know Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the first professional baseball game played at Fenway Park between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Highlanders. Roughly 25,000 fans attended that game in 1912 and 100 years later, at Friday's aanniversary celebration, 36,770 fans commemorated the birthday of America's most beloved ballpark. Around 2 p.m., I made my way down toward the field to my position (the camera well on the third-base side, next to the visitors' dugout) to take in the pregame festivities. Here are the top five memories I will take away from that very... Continue reading

It was one of those moments you'll remember forever. One of those moments you take a step back, look around and realize how lucky you are. One of those moments you recognize that your hard work has paid off. One of those moments you feel so thankful for all of the people who believe in you. Walking out onto the field on Opening Day in Detroit was that moment. Twenty minutes before the start of the game, I walked out of the tunnel behind home plate and made my way to the camera well to the left of the Red... Continue reading

A few days ago, I asked my followers on Twitter and Facebook to post any questions they might have for me and I picked 10 questions to answer. (I added in a few fun ones at the end.) Was your question answered? If you would like to know anything else, please feel free to contact me @JennyDellNESN or www.facebook.com/JennyDellNESN. Thank you! Describe in detail why you think you landed the "Dream Job" with NESN. --@Kelweng1 It is a "dream job" because of all the components of the position. Not only am I the on-field reporter for the Red Sox, but... Continue reading

Bobby Valentine hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped since. Everything at spring training thus far has been systematic and done with a purpose; including the video footage looped on the six clubhouse televisions. Valentine had Red Sox video coordinator, Billy Broadbent, produce different training videos to reinforce whatever the subject of the day will be; from pitchers’ fielding practice to hit and runs to outfield relays and even the bunting game. The continuous loop is Valentine's way of providing some positive reinforcement about why the fundamental drills are important. They are an attempt to help rebuild a strong foundation...

Since the majority of Red Sox Nation is stuck up North, I thought it would be nice to share the spring training experience with you. One fun way to do so would be by compiling all the best quotes I have overheard (so far) since arriving in Fort Myers. Enjoy! Tim Wakefield On retiring: "I've been so blessed to have been able to wear this uniform and be part of this historic franchise for as long as I have and I've enjoyed many successes along the way. But when it came down to it, I had to take a hard... Continue reading

To the most passionate, devoted fans in the world: Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm honored to be the newest member of the NESN team. Now, a quick breakdown of how I made my way to NESN... I grew up a "daddy's girl" in Southbury, Conn., and spent as much time as I could watching games with my father. Since my parents are from Brooklyn, N.Y., the team we watched in our house was the Yankees. (I know, I know... keep reading) Let's fast forward to high school. I started cheerleading competitively. When I wasn't at practice, or on... Continue reading
