I was born and raised in South Windsor, CT, where the Red Sox were (and still are) king in my family’s household. Currently living in Brighton, MA, working my dream job in the Red Sox Productions department. Writing is my passion, especially when it comes to sports. Always consuming sports content, always running outside, and always looking for a new place in the world to explore. Check out my sports blog @Sportsmart and send ideas!

Wrights also works at TD Garden as a member of the Bullgang crew in which they change the Garden floor from Boston Bruins hockey to Boston Celtics basketball and other events. Wrights loves baseball because of its pace and timeless nature of the game as it is his first passion.
I live in Watertown, MA. I go to school at Dean College full-time, studying sport management. I love baseball since the moment my dad took me to Fenway Park when I was a kid. I fell in love with the game. From the beauty of the ballpark, to witnessing fans run on the field, to almost catching foul balls. My first vivid memory of watching Red Sox baseball was from the 2003 ALCS when Pedro went toe-to-toe with Don Zimmer. I was lucky enough to have fallen asleep when Boone hit the walk-off homer off Wakefield. And then the next season was when I really became a die hard Sox fan. When Damon lit it up in game 7. And to see them sweep St. Louis. I also have a personal blog: https://dailysportsblog2727.wordpress.com
I was born and raised in Newington, CT. I graduated from Central CT State University with a Bachelors in Sociology. I have been a Red Sox fan for as long as I can remember. One of my favorite Red Sox memories has to be when they won it in 2018, my first year living in Boston.
