BOSTON, MA -- Red Sox players Jonny Gomes, David Ross, Ryan Kalish, and Daniel Nava will tour Boston tomorrow, visiting sites from Bunker Hill to Beacon Hill and from Copley Square to Kenmore Square. Traveling by truck, trolley, and train, they will meet fans, sign autographs, take photographs, and start the day by serving hot chocolate and donuts.
Accompanied by Wally the Green Monster, they will take the Green Line, the Old Town Trolley, and ride in the Dunkin’ Donuts sampling truck.
The visit to Boston is the first for Gomes since joining the Red Sox December 1, and the first for Ross since re-joining the club for whom he played briefly in 2008.
The players will distribute vouchers redeemable for tickets to games at Fenway Park this season, and there will also be ticket giveaways at various points in the day.
The group will start in Copley Square Plaza by serving hot chocolate and donuts from the Dunkin Donuts’ truck before traveling by Old Town Trolley to Charlestown to visit the Bunker Hill Monument and the U.S.S. Constitution. They will re-board the trolley and see the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall before boarding the MBTA Green Line to Kenmore Square.
