Red Sox grant holiday wishes with ‘Gift of Sox’ campaign

BOSTON (WHDH) — Members of the Red Sox granted holiday wishes Wednesday as part of their social media campaign “Gift of Sox.”

Red Sox fans are invited to tweet their Red Sox wishes to the team’s Twitter account. Some lucky fans have gotten their wishes for jerseys and autographs granted.

Some players also visited St. Patrick’s School in Roxbury Wednesday. Brock Holt, Devin Marrero and Matt Barnes came with Tessie the Green Monster and posed for pictures, signed autographs and handed out Red Sox merchandise.

Players and staff also brought the World Series trophies for a visit to the Boston YMCA and volunteered with the non-profit Cradles to Crayons. Other players brought puppies from Great Dog Rescue New England to hang out with students at Suffolk University. Mascot Wally the Green Monster was at the Jet Blue terminal at Logan Airport, where he surprised travelers with Red Sox tickets.

The Red Sox also fulfilled a wish from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. He asked that the team bring coffee and Red Sox tickets to the construction crew working on Martin Richard’s Memorial Park.
