Going the Distance

Sunday, January 24, 2010 – Freeport, Maine

Red Sox Road Trip

Last year the Red Sox started a Red Sox Road Trip on the weekend preceding ticket sales.  They took the 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies across New England giving fans the chance to get their pictures taken and pick up vouchers good for two tickets in a pre-sale this week.  This year, most of the locations close to me were scheduled for weekdays, but Sunday brought the road show to L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine.  The friend I go to most of my games with and I both grew up in Maine, so we decided to make the trip up for the day, even though it’s a 2½-hour drive from where I now live.

Some things never get old!

My friend brought a bunch of family members along, and we got there early enough to get in line indoors as it snaked up and down aisles between clothing racks, up the stairs, and out the door well before the event started.  The trophies arrived shortly after 4:00.  We got our pre-sale vouchers, plus stickers and a “Fenway Park 500th consecutive sellout” commemorative baseball, before getting our chance to pose with the World Series trophies.

It’s always fun to see the trophies again, and thanks to the vouchers we’ll be getting a head-start on the ticket sale next weekend.  But one of the best parts was that coupled with yesterday’s trip to Rhode Island for the PawSox Hot Stove Party, it made for a fun, baseball-filled weekend in the middle of winter, even if it did mean about 380 miles of driving!
