The Boston Red Sox would play a game against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, one day removed from a citywide manhunt that shut Boston down entirely.
A man reached out from the stream of people making the trek from Kenmore Station to Fenway Park Saturday morning to shake the hand of a military police officer standing guard. “God bless you,” he said meaningfully. The Boston Red Sox would play a game against the Kansas City Royals beginning at 1 p.m. The three-game series against the Royals was supposed to begin Friday night, but the game was postponed while the city was in lockdown mode as a manhunt for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings ensued. Boston rejoiced after that suspect, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, was arrested in Watertown just before 9 p.m. Friday. As Kenmore Square awoke Saturday morning there was a feeling of calm amid significantly heightened security. Boston …

The Boston Red Sox recognized the Pan-Massachussetts Challenge (PMC), a bike-a-thon for the Jimmy Fund, for 32 years of fundraising success with a PMC Day ceremony at Saturday night's game.

Our journey from Newburyport to York Beach to Brookline taught us the value of small spaces and shaped our priorities when choosing a new home.
It was my husband’s dream to live in Brookline within walking distance to Fenway Park. We had been living in Newburyport with twin toddlers when we decided to make it a reality. As often happens, our well-plotted journey took some unexpected turns and taught us a few things along the way. Our home in Newburyport had been typical new construction, with a vast open interior, soaring ceilings, and a kitchen that spanned two counties. We were excited to own such a large home but soon realized it came with unique challenges. Our enormous family room was more appropriate for a basketball hoop and batting cage than our couch and love seat, which had to be scaled gargantuan to fit the space. More concerning, we kept losing our toddlers in the …
