As medical professionals, doctors and nurses continue to put themselves on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups around the country are mowing special messages to thank them.
The Red Sox decided to thank them in a personal way, according to an article on Boston.com. On May 6, which is the first day of National Nurses Week, the team posted photos of a message mowed onto the outfield of Fenway Park. The message features the team’s signature logo spread a distance apart, a likely-temporary change that encourages social distancing.
The Red Sox are not the only ones to take to the lawn to show their support.
Bryant Park in New York City transformed its lawn into an artful tribute with a giant heart design mowed on it for all New Yorkers weathering the pandemic, especially essential workers on the frontline.
“Thank you healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers. Thank you to everyone staying home, social distancing, and checking in on their neighbors,” Bryant Park NYC wrote on Instagram.
The landscapers created the design were Jordan Pascariello from Moe’s Lawncare and Tim and TJ Baker from Baker & Sons Landscaping, both located in Highland, New York.
