Red Sox To Honor UConn Men’s, Women’s Basketball Teams At Fenway Park


shabazz napierThe University of Connecticut Huskies were NCAA champions in both men’s and women’s basketball this season, and both teams will be honored by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

The Huskies will throw out a ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night’s 7:10 p.m. game that opens a three-game series against the New York Yankees. Senior guard Shabazz Napier will throw for the men’s team, and junior forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis will throw for the women’s team.

The 2014 championship wins mark the fourth and ninth national title for the men’s and women’s teams, respectively.

The Red Sox also will celebrate Earth Day during Tuesday’s ceremonies.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
