PAWTUCKET â€“ Larry Lucchino admitted Wednesday that he tries to clear his schedule and make a once-per-season pilgrimage to McCoy Stadium. In that regard, the Red Soxâ€™s president and CEO should thank the PawSox for advancing to the Governorâ€™s Cup playoffs.
Providing a textbook case of better late than never, Lucchino took in Wednesdayâ€™s playoff opener from Pawtucket president Mike Tamburroâ€™s box.
Arriving roughly 3 1/2 hours prior to the scheduled 7:05 first pitch, Lucchino spent quite a bit of time in the home teamâ€™s clubhouse and in the company of PawSox skipper Arnie Beyeler.
