Red Sox, NESN to Host Red Sox Town Hall

As the Boston Red Sox prepare to head to Fort Myers to begin the 2012 season, the team is partnering with NESN to host a town hall-style meeting for fans on Feb. 1 at 7:00 p.m.

The 2012 Red Sox Town Hall Meeting will be an interactive conversation between fans and Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and manager Bobby Valentine.

“The value our fans continue to bring to the team is unequaled, and this town hall meeting is an opportunity for the organization to have an open and honest dialogue with the people who have been the touchstone of this franchise for so many years,” said Cherington. “We look forward to engaging with our fans face-to-face, and having a lively discussion that we will all benefit from.”

The Red Sox Town Hall Meeting will be held at Worcester Technical High School in Worcester, MA and televised on NESN on February 2 at 10:00 p.m. immediately after NESN’s Boston Bruins coverage. NESN’s Red Sox studio host Tom Caron will serve as the host for the event.

“NESN is always looking for ways to give fans unparalleled access to the team,” said Sean McGrail, NESN President and CEO. “Worcester is an ideal place for this event, giving fans in central Massachusetts an opportunity to interact directly with two of the team’s top decision-makers a few weeks before pitchers and catchers report to
Fort Myers.”

Fans interested in attending the Red Sox Town Hall can send an email to NESNTownHall@redsox.com. Space will be limited and fans will be selected on a first-come first-served basis.
