Kelsie Heneghan calls in (29:55)
Ben's Biz Banter (41:12)
- Benjamin Hill (@bensbiz) joins for his weekly segment, and he turns his focus to the ballpark situation with Triple-A Pawtucket. The PawSox announced they will no longer stick to their original plans to build a waterfront ballpark in Providence. However, it's still not likely that the club will try to stay in McCoy Stadium for the long term. Ben discusses his pieces about both sides of the issue concerning the ownership's point of view as well as that of passionate local fans. Sticking with the Red Sox theme, Ben talks about Portland pitcher Mike McCarthy, who is working with the non-profit organization Baseball Miracles to spread the sport to disadvantaged children around the globe.
