R.I. Reds Heritage Society Night at Pawsox on July 9
Providence, RI (6/7/2010): The region’s hockey fans have an opportunity to celebrate their favorite game in the middle of the baseball season on July 9 at the second annual R.I. Reds Night at the Pawtucket Red Sox.
The R.I. Reds Heritage Society and the PawSox are combining forces for the second year in a row for a special celebration of the state’s late and great hockey franchise at McCoy Stadium and an evening of baseball.
The Friday night event features an all-you-can-eat barbeque (beginning at 5), a PawSox (7:05) game against the Rochester Red Wings and a chance for fans with event tickets to meet former Reds players and get their autographs. Foremost in the spotlight will be two members of the Hockey Hall of Fame – Milt Schmidt and Ferny Flaman – who will participate in pre-game ceremonies.
Both played for the Reds during their long pro careers. Flaman also served the Providence team as coach and general manager after starring for the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs. Schmidt began his pro career with the Reds, then went on to serve the Bruins as team captain, coach and general manager.
Tickets are available at $26 each and can be ordered be sending checks payable to the R.I. Reds Heritage Society at P.O. Box 167, Barrington, RI 02806. The society will send tickets via return mail. Ticket deadline is July 2.
