“I had a great time at the ballpark seeing the Red Sox.” 
On a sunny, 70 degree day, welcomed by all in attendance after such a tough winter, Justin enjoyed the sights and sounds of Kenmore Square, Fenway Park, opening ceremonies and the complete team effort that followed.
Ceremonies included a performance of the National Anthem by Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jane Richards, backed by a Dorchester children’s choir.  Her performance was punctuated by a flyover that was followed by Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Krafts stepping up to first pitch duties. Others were celebrated and honored, including local hero Pete Frates, who started the Ice Bucket Challenge, raising hundreds of millions of dollars for ALS research.  Next, a video montage remembered those who the city and sport have lost this year, including Mayor Menino and several long-time Red Sox players and employees.
By the time the ceremonies wrapped up, Justin was more than ready for what turned out to be a big win for the home team and newcomer, Rick Porcello.  Justin was particularly enthusiastic about the “great performance” of upstart center fielder, Mookie Betts, whose play on both sides of the ball, set the tone for the team and the game.
