WORCESTER, Mass. – This summer, a Kids Baseball Action safety coloring cartoon series is headed to Worcester Red Sox and Polar Park, reminding patrons to be safer while playing baseball in their own backyards across New England.
The series was created featuring a variety of baseball related safety messages and coloring fun especially for kids that also depict Worcester Red Sox players in action. Baseball safety coloring topics include stretching, staying hydrated, safe sun limits, staying in shady places, playing baseball during reduced sun and hotter times of the day and playing in backyards, not in neighborhood streets.
These Worcester Red Sox baseball safety coloring cartoon posters will be distributed to children and adults at upcoming baseball games played in Polar Park during the summer as well as at surrounding restaurants, diners and community centers. The kids baseball safety coloring cartoons, featured on coloring posters, in coloring books, fridge magnets and stickers, were created and distributed at Pawtucket Red Sox Games for years using Jim’s cartoon characters and baseball player action series artwork. Now, they are heading to Worcester Red Sox Team home games and events hosted at Polar Park with all newly created and illustrated kids baseball safety coloring cartoons and player action-packed coloring fun.
