Pawtucket Red Sox to Host a ‘Free Brady Friday’ this Month
As Tom Brady’s Deflategate controversy continues, the Pawtucket Red Sox plan to show the Patriots star some love with a special game day promotion later this month.
The Boston Red Sox’s minor league team announced on Tuesday that it will be hosting a “Free Brady Friday” event at McCoy Stadium in June.
According to a post on Instagram, fans named Tom or Brady will be able to attend the Friday, June 10 game for free, in honor of the Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
The PawSox are hosting a "Free Brady Friday" on June 10th at McCoy Stadium. Anybody named Tom, or Brady, will be admitted to the game for free with valid identification. Box seats, normally priced at $13, will be priced at $12, in honor of the quarterback's uniform number. The club will also donate a "quarter back" on tickets sold to Best Buddies, a charity near and dear to Brady. #FreeBrady
If you’re not named Tom or Brady, don’t worry too much. The PawSox will also be selling discounted box seats for $12 each, in honor of Brady’s uniform number.
The team plans to donate a “quarter back” on tickets sold to charity as well, with proceeds going to Best Buddies, an organization that frequently works with the Patriots star. The game is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. in Pawtucket against the Louisville Bats.
The PawSox aren’t the only one’s who have joined the “Free Brady” movement in recent days.
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz told Sports Illustrated that he would turn off his television if the quarterback doesn’t take the field. Meanwhile, Patriots receiver Julian Edelman yelled “Free Brady” during the Boston Calling Music Festival on Saturday night.
The AFL-CIO also recently filed a friend of the court brief requesting the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to change the Deflategate decision given to Brady in April.
