Yesterday Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, the 2009 Skate Vert World Champion, and local pro, Anthony Shetler ditched skate practice to hit up the batting cage in Boston. Game On! Fenway is located next to Fenway Park and is literally connected to the legendary ballpark. Downstairs is the MLB Away Team’s official practice batting cages and they were opened up exclusively so Lyn-Z and Anthony could have some fun and try out their baseball skills.
Lyn-Z and Anthony, both naturals on a skateboard, impressed all the fans watching from the sidelines with their batting skills. The security guard even hooked them up with a private tour of Fenway, which for any sports fan in surreal.
Special thanks to Game On! Fenway for the wicked good time and good luck to Lyn-Z Adams this weekend as she looks to repeat as the Skate Vert World Champion this year and to Anthony Shetler, who’s looking to claim a spot in skate park and compete on the Dew Tour all season long. Dew Tour Tickets are still available at ticketmaster.com or at TD Garden Box Office. See you there.
