The handicap-accessible area, which is a tribute to late PawSox owner Ben Mondor, who passed away last October, is landscaped with paved walkways, granite steps, six park benches, and a collection of trees, plants, and flowers.
The area also contains six miniature bronze statues of young children playing baseball that Mondor purchased two years ago in Florida.
âBen would have loved this park-like setting,â added PawSox president Mike Tamburro as he looked over the scenic display, which will provide a place for fans to relax before and after a game.
