Pawtucket celebrates 125 years

August 23, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Perhaps the best way to describe the fun and frivolity folks experienced at McCoy Stadium on Tuesday night is this: Mayor Donald Grebien's description of his throwing out the first pitch before the PawSox' tilt against the Syracuse Chiefs.
“I reached the plate, that wasn't a problem, but it wasn't a strike,” laughed Grebien afterward. “The good news is Mike (Tamburro, PawSox President) did call it one. Congressman (David) Cicilline had said beforehand that he'd give the city a million-dollar grant if it was, so I'll be calling him tomorrow for the check.”
