With the Worcester Red Sox season now over, that doesn’t mean that fun at Polar Park must come to an end. Now that the Boston Red Sox have clinched an American League Wild Card spot, the Worcester Red Sox are inviting fans who can’t make it to Fenway, an opportunity to watch the game at Polar Park.
Monday afternoon the Worcester Red Sox announced that fans can “Celebrate the Boston Red Sox’ dramatic return to postseason play, the Worcester Red Sox will open the DCU Club overlooking Polar Park tomorrow evening (Tuesday, October 5) to allow free admission for all fans who would like to enjoy the Polar Park experience and root on the Red Sox in their winner-take-all showdown vs. the New York Yankees. (Yankee fans can enter at their own risk!).”
The Worcester Red Sox also said that, “The DCU Club will open at 7 p.m. with first pitch for the American League Wild Card game at Fenway Park taking place a little after 8 p.m. Fans can sit inside the DCU Club to watch the game on the many TVs throughout the Club, or they can sit outside the Club in Polar Park and watch the game on the beautiful Polar Park video board.”
Now a watch party as grat as this wouldn’t be complete without a cold beer and the many other food and beverage items that you could get while at a baseball game. Don’t worry, the Worcester Red Sox say that, “Typical ballpark fare and beverage items will be available for sale.”
In a statement, WooSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg said, “These events are part of our desire and commitment to attract fans to the Canal District year-round. Many fans have expressed a desire to congregate as one in their new home to watch the Red Sox and the Yankees, both of whom have players we watched this summer in Worcester. We look forward to a spirited gathering.”
