PawSox Admit Free Those Named 'Joe' Or 'Kelly' To NYY AAA-Affiliate Games

The PawSox—the AAA affiliate of the Red Sox—will admit free-of-charge any fans named "Joe" or "Kelly" to the upcoming games against the AAA affiliate of the Yankees. Moreover, anyone named "Tyler" or "Austin" will be banned from McCoy Stadium during the two-game series (May 5 and 6). This enlightened promotion by the Pawtucket owners—no doubt influenced by the presence of Larry Lucchino—is dubbed "The Evil Empire Weekend". Our favorite part? The contest at Saturday's game, where a fan dressed in his or her best "anti-Yankee" swag will win a free pair of 2018 season tickets. You've got to wonder what players on the "Little Evil Empire" Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders must be thinking.
