Rogers Clemens to Be Inducted into PawSox Hall of Fame
Before the PawSox head to Worcester, they are inducting one of the greatest pitchers in baseball's history into their Hall of Fame.
Very smart move by the Pawtucket Red Sox, if you ask me. Attendance has been down at McCoy so far this season, no doubt from the news that the team is packing it in for a brand new stadium in Worcester.
Well, to try and turn things around perhaps, the team has announced the induction of Roger Clemens into their four-year-old Hall of Fame.
In fact, Clemens is the one and only inductee for 2019.
And if you are wondering if he ever actually played at McCoy, he did. Clemens rehabbed there in the 1984 season, pitching seven games and earning a 2-3 record and 1.93 ERA.
And to honor that, he will return to Pawtucket on Friday, June 21 for the game against the Indianapolis Indians at 7:05 p.m.
You can purchase tickets to that game now and make sure you get there early the night of, because Clemens' induction will happen pre-game in an on-field ceremony.
You can also meet the 56-year-old former pitcher that night, but that will cost you more than just a regular ticket.
There are limited tickets for an all-you-can-eat barbecue event before the game with guaranteed Clemens meet-and-greet.
Those tickets are $40 for adults and $25 for kids.
If you just want to get a regular ticket, there is still a chance to meet the former all-star when he makes himself available for photos in ballpark’s main concourse from 7:45 to 8:30 p.m.
