World Series Trophies at Hadlock Field

See also

It may have been 86 years between Red Sox World Series wins, but now there are eight with three in the last ten years. On January 25, 2014 Sea Dogs fans who came down to Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine were able to get a picture with the Red Sox's three most recent World Series trophies. While not as brutally cold as it had been over the past few days, the weather was still uninviting. The cold temperature did not hinder the rugged Maine fans, many of whom waited in line for as much as 90 minutes, before being able to get photographs taken with the trophies.

Wally, the Red Sox mascot, and Slugger, the Sea Dogs mascot, were on hand to greet and hobnob with the waiting fans. Young and old, fans shared baseball stories as they waited in line. Parent brought their children to take a picture with a piece of baseball lore.

The snow is still laying heavy on Hadlock Field, but it is only a few weeks before pitchers report for spring training. Having the trophies in Portland for the fans was a nice precursor of the 2014 season to come. Viewing the World Series trophies at Hadlock is a reminder that so many former Sea Dogs have contributed to each of those World Series wins. Names such as Millar, Youklis, Beckett, Bogaerts, Ellsbury, Pedroia, Lester and Bradley have all played in Portland. As the new season approaches, it just stands to reason that Sea Dogs fans have a reasonable chance to see a future World Series MVP take the field at Hadlock this spring.

The countdown has started for opening day. Remember to bring your glove, and I'll see you at Hadlock.
