Commissioner Evans Receives Signed Baseball Bat From Charitable Foundation

At about 2:00 PM on Friday September 25, 2015, Lawrence Plescow, President of the “When U Dream A Dream” charitable foundation, presented Commissioner William Evans with a framed baseball bat signed by Red Sox DH David Ortiz. On September 26, 2014, nearly one year to the day, the foundation arranged a meeting between the Sox great and a child with physical disabilities at Fenway Park – when the BPD learned of the visit, they provided the young boy and his family with a motorcycle escort during their time in the city. The signed bat was the foundation’s way of saying thank you for that simple act of kindness. Commissioner Evans said that the bat will find a home somewhere in BPD Headquarters where it can be viewed and enjoyed by as many people as possible.
