The induction came as a result of Joel’s sixth consecutive annual performance at the Boston Red Sox’s iconic ballpark, more than any artist before him, which he performed on Saturday, September 14. He played to a sold-out crowd in the pouring rain.

Before the concert, Red Sox CEO and President Sam Kennedy presented Joel with a World Series Ring to commemorate the honor. The ring came with a plaque that reads, “Billy Joel / Boston Red Sox / 2018 World Champions.”

On Friday, September 20, the official Billy Joel website posted a photo gallery with many great shots from the momentous event. It also provides fan with the option of uploading their own photos to the gallery at billyjoel.com/event/billy-joel-concert-at-fenway-park.
