New England has one National Park, Acadia, and one baseball team, the Boston Red Sox. Founded in 1901, the Red Sox are one of the American League’s eight original professional baseball teams. Since 1912, the Red Sox have played at their Boston home, Fenway Park. The team has appeared in twelve World Series, winning eight of them, including the historic win in 2004 that ended an 86-year championship drought, called the “Curse of the Bambino,” named after Babe Ruth who was sold to rival team, the New York Yankees.

The Boston Red Sox are pleased to be a signature sponsor of the Acadia National Park Centennial. Sunday, June 19, 2016 will be Acadia Day at Fenway Park, as the Red Sox face the Seattle Mariners at 1:35 p.m. The Red Sox are happy to provide Friends of Acadia and Acadia National Park with the opportunity host an information table at Fenway, throw out the first pitch, and encourage young people in attendance to take a pledge to support and protect our national parks. This event will draw attention to the joint centennials of Acadia National Park and the National Park Service overall and connect New England audiences with the importance of outdoor recreation and caring for national parks.
