Fenway Park Goes Green

Williams and Pesky. Pedroia and Ortiz. Moniz and McCarthy?

Though their names might not be as renowned around Yawkey Way, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Environmental Protection Agency Director Gina McCarthy were at Fenway Park Tuesday night with a purpose as noble as the pursuit of World Series trophy.

Capping an Earth Day blitz of media interviews and public events, they made their pitch - the First Pitch, to be precise - to thousands before the start of the Red Sox-Yankees game, highlighting the work that is already underway to combat climate change, as well as the work left to be done.

The duo used the high profile of the first pitch to highlight the need to act now to prevent further damage from climate change, and bring attention to the Obama Administration's commitment to the issues.
