Carl Beane, the voice of the Red Sox and Fenway Park, recently passed away. His support of team Cocktails for a Cure and the MS Challenge Walk will be missed.

Many in Red Sox Nation learned the sad news that Fenway Park public address announcer Carl Beane died after suffering a heart attack while driving his car in Sturbridge, MA. Beane, 59, had been the "Voice of Fenway Park" since the start of the 2003 season.

What many do not realize is Carl Beane's connection to the MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod. He's been a part of the Cocktails for a Cure Softball Tournament since 2007.

Cocktails for a Cure team member Amy Scannell met Carl Beane at an event at Fenway Park in 2007. Says Amy, "He was so approachable, kind, and easy to talk to. That year, and every year since, he was our special guest at the Cocktails for a Cure MS Softball Tournament. He would let the attendees try on the 2004 and 2007 World Series Championship Rings and take photos with everyone, too. He never asked for anything in return. He was a great friend of our team and a wonderful supporter of our cause. He will be missed."

Danielle was a Development Manager for the Greater New England Chapter of the National MS Society, managing MS Challenge Walk 2011 and 2012. Prior to joining the staff of the National MS Society, Danielle served as a crew team captain during the 2009 and 2010 MS Challenge Walks.
