The Salem Red Sox are a sports team dedicated to helping our community. We believe in using baseball and entertainment as a backdrop in supporting and assisting in strengthening the Roanoke Valley and surrounding communities, along with State and National organizations. While we are a summer sport, we do work in the community 12 months a year through mascot appearances at schools & local events, donations to fundraisers, Red Sox reading program, staff volunteer work and much more. With the introduction of our annual Hot Stove Banquet, we now have a marquee event to help raise funds for local charities.
The Salem Red Sox cornerstone charity partners are:
The Salem Red Sox are holding a silent auction during the Salem-Roanoke Baseball Hall of Fame Annual Dinner on Thursday, January 26 at the Salem Civic Center!

The Salem Red Sox Reading Program is ready for all interested schools to sign-up for the 2011-2012 school year! We had another extremely exciting and successful year for the Reading Program. We had over 10,000 students from over 40 schools located throughout Southwestern Virginia participate during the 2011 season. We don't want your school to be left out and to make it even better, THE ENTIRE PROGRAM IS FREE. Click here for more information on our Reading Program.

Wednesdays at LewisGale Field feature a special Community Outreach initiative called "Pack the Park For Charity." Any non-profit organization can generate revenue through the sale of discounted Salem Red Sox tickets for their specific game and utilize LewisGale Field to share their goodwill message. The Salem Red Sox will donate an additional $0.50 per every full priced ticket sold as a walk-up on the date of their game. This means the more people that "pack the park" at LewisGale Field, the more revenue generated for a worthwhile cause. Support your favorite team in the Roanoke Valley and a great cause at the same time!
