DURHAM, N.C. â€” When does a Game One have a Game Seven vibe to it?
The answer: When youâ€™re participating in a single nine-inning affair that will determine the top Triple-A squad of 2012, which is whatâ€™s happening Tuesday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, site of the Triple-A National Championship Game between International League champion Pawtucket and the Reno Aces, the top team from the Pacific Coast League.
Itâ€™s a winner-take-all contest that will serve as the final minor-league baseball game of the season, at any level.
DURHAM, N.C. â€“ What images do the Pawtucket Red Sox conjure? For longtime fans, the question could elicit all kinds of responses.
You think of Ben Mondor, Pawtucketâ€™s late owner who would have been in his glory this week, enjoying every moment of the pomp and circumstance leading up to tonightâ€™s Triple-A National Championship.
You also think of beautiful McCoy Stadium, a befitting monument to Mondorâ€™s tireless efforts to build a first-class, fan-friendly ballpark out of the rundown facility he inherited.
DURHAM, N.C. â€” The sum of the phrase â€śthe 2012 Pawtucket Red Soxâ€ť is much bigger than the 25-man roster at manager Arnie Beyelerâ€™s disposal for tonightâ€™s Triple-A National Championship at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
With injuries, call-ups, trades and other roster maneuvering, the PawSox needed a proverbial village of ballplayers to get through a challenging season, make the International League playoffs and clinch the Governorsâ€™ Cup.
