The Pawtucket Red Sox open their 46th home season Friday night at McCoy Stadium – if the Weather Gods cooperate, of course. Just got word that the bad weather has nixed tonight's home opener.
The PawSox and division rival, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (The Philadelphia Phillies AAA Affiliate) are slated to kick things off at 7:05 p.m. Right-hander Zach Eflin is scheduled to take the mound for the visitors against another right handed starter, Justin Haley, for the PawSox.
Pawtucket will be looking for its 12th opening night victory in the last 13 years. The first 3,000 fans entering McCoy will receive a free PawSox wall calendar.
The series continues on Saturday and Sunday, with games on both days at 1:35 p.m.
