Red Sox poster prizes! Posters look great at any party, theyre
colorful and typically take up a large space. However, they
are also great to give away as prizes to any games you might
have planned while your guests watch the game. You might consider
putting up the posters in the space BEHIND the TV set that
everyone will be watching the game on. Then, at different
times throughout the game (either random times or after mini
games have been played and won) award different guests the
opportunity to choose which of the posters that theyve
won and that theyd like to take home with
them! See below for online poster resources. See below for
some games involving aiming a whiffle ball. Whiffles balls
are fun because they are light and change direction very easily.
Setting up a simple target to aim at in your backyard should
do the trick, though if you have a larger space consider allowing
the players to hit the ball with a plastic bat. If you are
choosing the latter, make sure that the target is larger as
its much more difficult to hit your target hitting the
ball with the bat.
youve recently been to a Boston Red Socks game (or are
planning to go to one before you need to mail out your invitations),
use one of the programs to photocopy the front page. On the
backs of the copy, print out all of your party information!

Boston Red Sox Penny Pitch. Set up a few Los Angeles Dodgers
baseball caps (face up such that they could catch a penny
if one was thrown its way) on the ground some distance away.
Around the Boston Red Sox caps arrange OTHER teams caps
in a similar fashion. Each player is to throw five pennies
towards the arrangement of hats, hoping their pennies land
inside the Boston Red Sox caps. They will receive 5 points
for each penny that does. For every penny that lands in ANOTHER
cap (some other team) TWO points are taken away from their
score. Once each player has had a chance to throw their five,
determine a winner by seeing who has the most points!

the colors of the Boston Red Sox are red, midnight navy and
white, consider getting these colors of construction paper
and creating a paper chain for decorating. This is an activity
that the kids can even get in on (and take over if youre
) They are simple to create - you can get creative,
too, on your color arrangement. For example you can alternate
colors or have several links of one color before changing
to a new color.
youll want to blanket a large space of your party with
their colors, but that can get pretty expensive. For an inexpensive
alternative, pick up a few rolls of cheap wrapping paper in
the Padres colors. These can be used to decorates doorways,
walls and even used to cut out giant letters spelling the
name of the team!
