Red Sox and BIDMC
Last season was a special one, from spring training to the final big win. We're so proud to be the official hospital of the Boston Red Sox. That's why Game Day is our favorite day.

The Red Sox Scholars program, launched in 2003 and funded by the Red Sox Foundation, rewards academically talented, economically disadvantaged Boston Public School students with $10,000 college scholarships. BIDMC has been the proud "presenting sponsor" of the program.
