Do you remember where you were on October 27, 2004? Chances are unless you are a Boston Red Sox fan, you probably won't. On that day, the Boston Red Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals and won the World Series for the first time in 86 years. It was a wonderful day especially for my favorite player of all time, David Ortiz.
Big Papi will be retiring at the end of this season and there is no doubt that the Red Sox and baseball will not be the same without him. Here's hoping his last season continues to be memorable.
As you may know, here at H.O.M.E we love intergenerational relationships, and there is no doubt that baseball can help foster some of those relationships. Want to show a mentor or friend your appreciation for them? Make a gift to H.O.M.E. in their honor!
In honor of the All-Star Game we highlighted an all-star seniors every day this past week on our blog and on social media! These seniors are retired or "senior" athletes and inspirational older adults who we can learn a thing or two from.
