Two exceptional employees were honored with this year’s Ricardo Diaz Memorial Award during the celebration, recognizing the hard work, selflessness and compassion reflective of Diaz’s.
Members of MGH Police, Security and Outside Services presented the colors before the Aug. 17 Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
“We have had the privilege of presenting our nation’s flag at various events, however, presenting the American flag at America’s pastime in our nation’s oldest ballpark was truly a humbling experience,” says John Petty III, operations supervisor for MGH Police and Security. “Presenting the colors on the Fenway grass before a near sellout crowd while the national anthem was sung is an honor that we will cherish forever.”
In addition to Petty, the honor guard members were Alan Moulaison, Robert Langhorne, James Harrop, Christopher Beagle, George Ayan and Tara Chipman.
