Boston Red Sox Party Ideas

Boston Red Sox poster prizes! Posters look great at any party, they’re 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 they’ve ‘won’ and that they’d like to take home with them! See below for online poster resources. See below for poster resources.

Play 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 it’s much more difficult to hit your target hitting the ball with the bat.

If you’ve 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!

Play 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!

Send your guests on a Baseball themed scavenger hunt! You can either create your own lists or download one CLICK HERE!

As 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 you’re lucky…) 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.

Sometimes you’ll 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!
