Latino Youth Recognition Day – Monday, May 6th, 2013
Six different public middle school districts from across Greater Boston were well represented at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark, Fenway Park, last Monday, May 6th as El Mundo Newspaper and the Boston Red Sox held their first of three Latino Youth Recognition Days (LYRD) this season.
Twenty One (21) hard working and academic all-stars from the Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Revere and Everett public schools were publicly recognized during a special on field pre-game ceremony featuring David “Big Papi” Ortiz, Félix Doubront, Franklin Morales and Pedro Ciriaco. The recognition took place moments before the Red Sox took on the Toronto Blue Jays at historic Fenway Park in front of over 37,000 fans.
