About Last Night: Pawtucket Red Sox, September 1, 2015
This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll be writing an on-the-spot blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my presumed return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and, perhaps, love. Let’s get to it, lest it get to us!
2015 “On the Road” landing page — including complete itinerary — HERE!
September 1, 2015: McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Sox (Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox).
Opponent: Lehigh Valley IronPigs, game time 7:05 p.m.
McCoy Stadium, from the outside:
Culinary Creation: Clam Cakes in a greasy white paper bag (best when dipped in bowl of Blount’s New England Clam Chowder)
Ballpark Character: Paw Sox director of security Rick Medeiros, author of the “Rollin’ with Rick” blog.
Your Groundbreaking and Subversive Ballpark Joke of the Day: You know, because there was a long “Paws” before I said his name. Since I feel the need to explain this one, you know it didn’t work.
