Hayward and his wife, Robyn, were greeted with a message on the jumbotron along with a video giving a glimpse of what it is like to play in Boston. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and a message from David Ortiz were included in the video.

The video most certainly emphasizes Boston's rabid fanbase and the general aura that comes with playing in the city. Both of those factors undoubtedly will be important factors in Hayward's final decision.
