It doesn't look like we'll be seeing former Shrewsbury resident and St. John's graduate, John Andreoli roaming the Polar Park, or Fenway outfields next season. He was released by the Red Sox earlier today. Many in the area were rooting for the local kid to get a chance to play with the team he grew up cheering for. He was signed by the organization back in December as a non-roster invitee to spring training. T...

    Let's assume, (dream might be a better word) that eight months from now this pandemic is behind us and we are all gathered together to christen our new baseball team at Polar Park. It's becoming a little clearer what that experience will be like. Despite the Covid induced, temporary construction shutdown it looks like the ballpark is still on schedule.

     If you don't already know, the WooSox have a radio show,...

    We are just over 500 days from the first pitch at Polar Park and one of the many questions that remain is how the team will be able to maximize their media coverage. It's no secret that one of Worcester's weaknesses as a moderate size city is the glaring lack of media. Unlike Providence, who have four network affiliate television stations and a PBS affiliate, Worcester has zero. I'm sure this was a concern for the team bef...

Pawtucket, RI-The Pawsox won their second seires in a row, taking 3 out of 4 against the Syracuse Mets over their weekend. Their record improves to 6-4. On Saturday the Sox cruised to an easy 7-2 win behind a another sold start. Josh Smith dominated, going 6 innings, giving up just 1 run on 4 hits. He struck out 10 and didn't walk anyone. At one point he retired 10 in a row. He a...

     Call it symmetry, call it coincidence, call it meant to be. Whatever you call it I can't help, but think it's only fitting that when you are standing on the future playing field at Polar Park off in the distance you can see The College of the Holy Cross looking down over the future ballpark. The college is home to Fitton Field, one of the oldest baseball diamonds in the city. The field t...

Mike Miller, who remains one of the hottest hitters in the lea...

Buffalo, NY-The Worcester Red Sox of Pawtucket are back at .500 after they beat the Buffalo Bisons 6-4 last night. The big hit came in the 5th on a 3-run blast by Rusney Castillo, which made the score 6-1. It was a breakout night for former Holy Cross star, Nick Lovullo, who went 3-4. The former Crusader's first AAA hit knocked in t...

    After a tough series with Syracuse where they lost 3 out of 4 with the Mets, the Sox headed north to take on the Toronto Blue Jays affiliate in Buffalo, hoping to get back in the win column. The good news for the Sox was that the minor league's most exciting player, Valadimir Guerrero Jr., is out with an injury. Two other sons of Major League stars, Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio, were in the lineup, but went a combined 1-9...

    The Worcester Red Sox won't be taking the field until 2021, but that doesn't mean the fans of the team will have to wait until then to get pumped for baseball in Kelley Square. Last week, the team started selling the official Worcester Red Sox jersey. The hottest selling item in Worcester since Coney Island hot dogs began making their journey to hungry Worcesterite's stomachs 101 years ago. The jersey was sold out in a mat...
