JP youth paints iconic ‘K’ signs at Fenway Park for the 2024 season with the BASE and Boston K Men

JP resident [Yager Velarde] was part of special group of youth from The BASE who painted iconic “K” signs at Fenway Park with the Boston K Men. The newly painted “K” signs will be posted above the Green Monster by the K Men every time the Red Sox ace pitcher strikes out a batter next season. The “K” painting event was part of a holiday fundraiser the K Men are holding to support The BASE, selling limited edition t-shirts and hats with 100 percent of proceeds benefitting the Roxbury non-profit at
