She told the Herald she kept hearing the phrase, "We're all in this together," and seeing it on social media. "But there needs to be a realization that we're all going through this, but we're all in different situations.

"It really wasn't sitting well with me."

She called BHCHP director Alyssa Brassil, who pointed to specific needs for a homeless population in Boston of which an estimated 30 percent have been infected by the virus. The BHCHP has set up a COVID-19 response fund and a wish list on amazon.com for items such as shampoo, facial tissues and flip-flops.

Erin Bradley told the Herald she's part of a group of Red Sox wives who have volunteered at the BHCHP in the summer and have helped collect clean white socks for the homeless at games.

"I think it's good for fans to see that while we're here for baseball and it's our husbands' jobs, we do become a part of the community, too," Erin Bradley said. "Our daughter, Emerson, was born in Boston, which may not be a forever home for us, but will always hold a really special spot in our hearts."
