PawSox To Host ‘Evil Empire Weekend’ After Joe Kelly-Tyler Austin Brawl

A well-known rivalry has sparked a promotion night for the Boston Red Sox’s Triple-A team.

The Pawtucket Red Sox will host the¬†Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the New York Yankees Triple-A team, at McCoy Stadium in what’s being called “Evil Empire Weekend.”

The promotion stems from the Red Sox-Yankees brawl between Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin earlier this month at Fenway Park.

In an official press release from the PawSox, it states, “fans who confess to being named Aaron (Judge), Gary (Sanchez), Aroldis (Chapman), Didi (Gregorius), CC (Sabathia), Jacoby (Ellsbury), Masahiro (Tanaka), Giancarlo (or Mike) (Stanton) will be charged double the price of a regular ticket. All Yankee fans will, of course, be warmly welcomed.”

The series is set to take place on May 5th and 6th.
