The Red Sox are sending Wally and Tessy to lead our parade onto the field for a massive group photo with the Mayor, City Officials, the Red Sox, Sponsors, the Corsi Family, and all players and families in Newton!!! Of course, Wally and Tessy will hang around for individual photos until 4:15 pm.

  • Photos with Wally and Tessy

  • T-Mobile Home Run Derby for 12U players

  • Red Sox supplied fun activities for the kids

  • Dunk the coach!

  • Senior League Baseball Games 12:30-2:30 & 4:30-6:30

  • Majors & AAA Games 12:30-2:30 & 4:30-6:30


The parade will proceed north on Albemarle Road to Waltham Street, turn left around the Cheesecake Brook, and continue back to the beginning. A brief ceremony will follow at Murphy Field.

All teams should meet between Murphy and Roche Field (250 Albemarle Rd.) at 2:30 pm.

​We would like to have all Little League baseball and softball players take part and be in the photo to create a lasting memory of the event and to honor the life of Jim Corsi.  

This is a community event for Newton, a very worthy cause, and we encourage every family to donate $25 to the Dana Farber as part of the event.


Donate to Dana Faber in Memory of Jim Corsi


Former Newton Little League player turned Major League reliever Jim Corsi, who pitched for the World Series-winning Athletics in 1989 and his hometown Red Sox from ’97-99, died earlier this year, at the age of 60, following battles with liver and colon cancer.

Corsi’s death came two days after a poignant feature on him aired on WBZ Channel 4 in Boston. (VIDEO)

One message Corsi wanted to get across to viewers was that he made a mistake not getting a colonoscopy when he was younger.

I made a mistake when I was younger,” Corsi said as he fought back tears. “I should have done it. If you’re out there, don’t wait. Don’t be stupid. I was a professional athlete. I thought I was invincible, strong.” (READ MORE)

We are honored to be part of the

Newton Little League Family FunFest
& 1st Annual Jim Corsi Day

Jim was a big Cabot's fan throughout his life. His enjoyment  was always shown by his big smile while enjoying a banana split with extra fudge and of course mocha chip ice cream. He was a great role model for all young athletes. His life touched many in our community, and he led by example which was to enjoy every day! So, let's celebrate Jim today! 

Cabot’s continues its community involvement  and is celebrating its 53rd year in the City of Newton with ice cream smiles all along.
