Club releases its season-long promotional schedule;
Friday Night Fireworks presented by Unibank head the list
Fireworks also set for July 3 and 4
WORCESTER, MA – With single game tickets for June’s two homestands on sale now at woosox.com and the Polar Park Ticket Office, the WooSox today unveiled their full season promotional schedule. Seven themes, one for each day of the week, are the basis for the schedule. Friday Night Fireworks presented by Unibank head the list.
TUESDAYS: THE POLAR PARK COLLECTION: Homestands in 2021 begin on Tuesdays, and the WooSox provide free photos that comprise the “Polar Park Collection.”
On Opening Day, the WooSox were able to print photos of the pre-game ceremonies and first pitch of the game in time to distribute them to fans as they exited the park. The gifts were sponsored by DCU.
This past Tuesday, the club distributed another double-photo gift—the ballpark site before Worcester was chosen, and the ballpark, shot from the same perspective, just eight weeks ago. That item was presented by Harpoon.
Each Tuesday, a photo of Polar Park construction milestones will be given to fans.
WOMEN ON WEDNESDAYS: THE WOMEN OF WORCESTER: Each Wednesday, the WooSox shine the spotlight on a woman who is making contributions in the community. On the first Wednesday of the season (May 12), Ballpark Design Advisor Janet Marie Smith was the honoree. On the second Wednesday (May 19), the club paid tribute to its neighbor, the YWCA, and its new Executive Director, Deb Hall.

THURSDAYS ARE COLLEGE NIGHTS: Now that Covid-19 restrictions are set to ease at Polar Park starting June 1, the club will provide special opportunities for college students on Thursday nights. June 3 will be the first College Night. A special ticket price of $15 includes $9 of loaded value, good for food and drink at concession stands. Details will be posted at woosox.com.
