Worcester Red Sox (WooSox)
The Worcester Red Sox (also known as the WooSox) are Worcester’s own Minor League Baseball team. Like the Bravehearts, the WooSox typically play Tuesday through Sunday each week, although their season runs a bit longer, as it’s already begun and will run through the end of September.
While you’re bound to have a fun-filled night no matter what game(s) you choose to attend, you might find some of the WooSox’s special events particularly enticing: Aug. 6 brings a “Scout Night Sleepover,” where scouts enjoy a baseball-themed slumber party at Polar Park. And on Sept. 2, the WooSox celebrate “Pride at the Park,” honoring members of the LGBTQ+ community prior to the evening’s game. Be sure to purchase tickets ahead of time, so you can witness this colorful local celebration.
