Guests are granted the opportunity to mingle with some of New England’s most legendary athletes during the welcoming gala reception, which begins at 5:30 p.m. on the arena floor. Each ticket also includes a seat at the awards ceremony, where fans share in the career highlights and accomplishments of each honoree as they take the stage as part of ‘The Tradition Class of 2011’.

    This year’s honorees include Boston Celtics Legend and the embodiment of ‘Celtic Pride’, Larry Bird, as the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. The pride of Lowell, retired junior welterweight professional boxer and former WBU champion Micky Ward, will receive the Boxing Legacy Award. A four-time Pro Bowl cornerback and a three-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots, Ty Law, will receive the Football Legacy Award. Recently retired third baseman Mike Lowell will receive the Baseball Legacy Award for helping the Red Sox to World Series glory. Boston Bruin alumni Willie O’Ree, the first black player to participate in a regular season NHL game, will be honored with the Hockey Legacy Award for his contributions to professional hockey. Bobbi Gibb will be honored with a Special Achievement Award for becoming the first woman ever to run the Boston Marathon in 1966. Award presenters will be announced closer to the event.
