Homestand Photos

The PawSox first homestand of 2012 wraps up this afternoon with a 12:05 first pitch against Lehigh Valley. Here are some photos from the first five games of the season at McCoy Stadium thanks to photographer Kelly O’Connor.

Thanks again to Kelly O’Connor for bundling up and taking these great pics. Steve and I hit the air at 11:50 this morning for the series finale versus the IronPigs.

Talk with you then.




Great pics!!

I realize I’m a dumb MidWesterner from St Louis and can’t possbilby be as advanced as you Easterners but……please explain why some photos of the PawSox have them in Red Sox Shirts with PawSox baseball hats and others show them in PawSox Shirts with PawSox Baseball caps. What’s the scoop?

Sure thing: “PawSox” is short for “Pawtucket Red Sox.” Although you would never say “Pawtucket PawSox,” either PawSox or Red Sox is the correct name for the team. That’s why they can wear a shirt that says “Red Sox” while still wearing a hat with the Pawtucket “P.” Hope that helps!
