Boston sports writers trapped at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday night will not have to worry about missing Game 6 of the World Series. The Raptors have them covered.
The Raptors’ media relations team informed members of the media that the Red Sox-Cardinals game would be shown on TVs in the press area during the Celtics’ regular-season opener in Toronto. The beat reporters will be forgiven if they keep one eye on the action on the court and one eye on the TV screen in the second half.
The Celtics and Raptors tip off at 7 p.m., with the first pitch of Game 6 scheduled for 8:07 p.m. Celtics coach Brad Stevens admitted Tuesday that he expects his team to lose a lot of viewers right before John Lackey‘s first pitch hits David Ross‘ catcher’s mitt.
