If you’ve been looking for the perfect time to hit up some minor league baseball, you just found it. For a 20-dollar price tag, the event sponsors will hit you up with a ticket to this Sunday’s PawSox game, round-trip bus transportation, a meal (hot dog, chips, Gatorade), and a chance to run the bases after the game, if that’s something you’re into. The PawSox, of course, are the Red Sox triple-A affiliate (that is, their best minor league team) and the only professional baseball team in Rhode Island. Yeah, that’s right – somehow, there’s only one professional baseball team in Rhode Island. Go figure.
Need some more reasons to go? Fine. 1) The PawSox are a good team–league champs last year and 12-7 so far this year. 2) Brown alum Matthew Colantonio ’11 will be playing for the visiting Columbus Clippers. 3) I really only thought of two reasons, but you should go. According to the Facebook event, those who want a ticket should email Joshua_Weiner@brown.edu or Connor_Sakwa@brown.edu. The PawSox are waiting.
