ADL of New England to honor Steinberg, Red Sox

The Anti-Defamation League New England Region will honor Dr. Charles Steinberg and the Red Sox with its Distinguished Community Service Award on Feb. 11.

The award is given annually to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to social justice and community building in both their personal and professional lives. Steinberg, the team’s executive vice president and senior adviser to team president Larry Lucchino, is being recognized for helping the region heal after the Boston Marathon bombings.

“Boston is lucky to have Dr. Charles Steinberg and the Red Sox as part of the city’s fabric. In the wake of the devastating impact of the Marathon bombing, they gave us hope, pride, and the unity we needed to heal,” said ADL regional director Robert Trestan.
