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.
â€śBen would have loved this park-like setting,â€ť 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.
