We don’t have Big Papi this year, but Red Sox fans still have much to look forward to – Mookie, JBJ, Xander…
As we prepare for another great season of championship baseball, we can also take a moment to look back. The history is rich, the stories are classic, and the Red Sox fan base in Metro West is perfectly positioned to enjoy an evening hearing tales about America’s favorite pastime.
That’s exactly what we’ll be doing on May 5, as The Wellesley Historical Society turns to Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy to lead a baseball-themed “look back” panel discussion and live auction at the Society’s annual fundraising dinner.
Emmy Award-winning sports reporter Mike Dowling will moderate the panel, titled “Looking Back on America’s Favorite Pastime.” Boston Sports Museum historian Richard Johnson will join Kennedy for the story-filled discussion.
WHAT: A baseball-themed evening featuring Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy
WHEN: May 5, 2017 – 6:00 p.m. ET
WHERE: Wellesley Country Club
HOW: Buy online at www.wellesleyhistoricalsociety.org/springfundraiser (beginning April 7)
Come join us in sharing entertaining baseball stories with the Wellesley community while helping raise funds for The Wellesley Historical Society.
In addition to the “look back” baseball panel discussion, the evening will feature a live auction with great prizes, a ballpark-themed dinner, and plenty of bleacher-style socializing.
Net proceeds from the event will support the Historical Society’s work providing scholarships for Wellesley High School students, preserving and managing collections, and general operating expenses.
Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are available. For more information please contact:

One of the exciting additions is our new blog, and we hope you will visit it regularly to learn something new about Wellesley’s history and to get updates on the Historical Society’s programs and events.
The new site has updated guides to researching at the Historical Society including finding aids to many of our archival collections. Interested in researching your historic house or genealogy? Check out our new Research Page to get started.
We also couldn’t be happier with the new look and feel of www.wellesleyhistoricalsociety.org and would like to thank J Sherman Studios in Newton and Agency 3.0 in Lexington for their incredible work bringing this new face to Wellesley’s history.
We hope you enjoy the site!
