Latham Friends at Fenway!


As the Red Sox charge through another season, our Latham students had a great opportunity to go behind the scenes at historic Fenway Park. While watching the game and touring the stadium, students simultaneously learned about the Red Sox deep roots in Boston. 

The energy in the air heightened. Foul balls were jumping out of the stadium and forceful hits were bouncing off of the Green Monster. Directly in front of the Red Sox dugout a group of Latham Students lean leisurely for a photo- an empty stadium behind them, with the grounds crew working the field. Two Latham students pose for a photo in the Press Box, peering down at the antiquity of Fenway Park, and SURPRISE- in each photo sits the miniature playhouse! With the help of digital photography enhancement, the mini-playhouse was also able to travel past the bounds of Cape Cod, and into the home of the Boston Red Sox.

One ticket can be purchased for $10 and 3 tickets for $20. All proceeds support initiatives for Latham individuals with complex special needs and Prader-Willi Syndrome, such as trips to Boston! Tickets are being sold through our community partners: MA Frazier in Wellfleet, Seamen’s Bank in Eastham, Sherwin Williams in Orleans, JoMama’s in Brewster, the Yarmouth Moose Lodge, and all Cape Associates branches (N.
