About Home Base

Military Vets &
Harvard Horses


Home Base Foundation was started by the Boston Red Sox and Massachusetts General Hospital in 2009 for military veterans and their families suffering from the invisible wounds of war. In addition to intense clinical treatments, Home Base takes veterans on weekend visits to a few horse farms for the therapeutic benefits of the countryside, as well as grooming, grazing, and riding horses.

Harvard Polo’s special relationship with Home Base revolves around different cohorts of the military vets - Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force - visiting the Harvard Farm north of Boston one weekend a month to rest and relax with the Harvard horses.

About our Guests

Crocker Snow '61 has been the head coach of the Harvard Polo Team since its renaissance in 2007 after a dozen-year hiatus. The oldest college team in the country dating from the 1890’s, the team now plays intercollegiately against some of the 30-odd college teams in the country, as well as internationally. Twenty-odd players comprised of Men and Women varsities and a mixed JV. help take care of a “string” of 16 polo ponies (horses) headquartered at the Harvard Polo & Equestrian Center in South Hamilton, Ma, Snow started playing while in college (when it didn’t conflict with the hockey team), and continued playing as an amateur in a range of polo tournaments on the East Coast and elsewhere, and in a dozen countries in Europe, Latin America, The Middle East, and Asia during his travels as a journalist. Three of his five sons played professionally, including America’s last 10 goal player (who went to Yale).

Tommy Lee Jones '69 played football at Harvard and was the starting guard in the college’s most famous 29-29 game vs. Yale at the Stadium in 1968. He started polo after college in his home state of Texas, and later competed in Florida, California, and Argentina. He has been very supportive to the rebuild of the Harvard Polo, hosting teams for preseason bootcamp at his Texas ranch in San Saba, as well as in Florida and Argentina on occasions. Even more important he has over the years donated 18 horses to the Harvard team, including most of the best horses in the team’s current and all-important string.
