Devens School teacher Kevin Doyle threw out the ceremonial first pitch on Wednesday, July 6 at Fenway Park as the Boston Red Sox celebrated Disability Awareness Night. The Red Sox recognized several local families and advocates in the disability community, as well as Paralympians and Special Olympians, as part of its pregame ceremonies prior to the Red Sox-Tampa Bay Rays game. Doyle was joined by Paralympian rower and silver medalist Allie Reilly in throwing out ceremonial first pitches.
In addition to serving as a substitute special education teacher at the Devens, Doyle is a member of the Red Sox’ media relations staff.
Disability Awareness Night was coordinated in partnership with Horace Mann Education Associates (HMEA), which aims to teach, support and empower people with developmental disabilities and their families to live meaningful lives of their choice. Disability Awareness Night is part of the City of Boston’s All-Inclusive Boston culture and tourism initiative and the Red Sox’ ongoing effort to make Fenway Park an inclusive environment for all fans.
