The Worcester Red Sox and UMass Memorial Health partner to bring fans the heartwarming Home Run for Life program. Each season, we help tell the stories of brave children who, with the help of their families, physicians and health care team, are presently battling or have successfully overcome significant medical events in their young life.

During each Home Run for Life, we host the honoree and his/her support team of family, friends, doctors, and UMass Memorial Health representatives in a luxury suite. The honoree gets VIP treatment including WooSox souvenirs, a chance to meet and get autographs from WooSox players, and a tour of Polar Park.

Each honoree is recognized on the field during an inning break. The honoree, their family and support team are taken onto the field and the honoree gets to take a symbolic lap around the bases to a standing ovation from the crowd.
