During their many years of ownership of the Boston Red Sox, Tom and Jean Yawkey actively supported college and amateur baseball programs throughout the region. They generously made Fenway Park available for use by many local college teams.

The Yawkey Foundations' Baseball and Softball Fields Initiative celebrates the Yawkeys' rich tradition of supporting baseball programs by working with New England institutions with a demonstrated commitment to quality baseball and softball programs to refurbish or rebuild their baseball and softball fields. Preference will be given to institutions who make their fields available to the local community for baseball and softball games, youth clinics, and summer camp programs.
