PAWTUCKET, RI – With just 90 days until Opening Night, and with only three days until all single-game tickets go on sale, the Pawtucket Red Sox today announced their new Promotions Calendar for 2017 - one that continues to increase the number of attractions and events while further raising the level of fun for fans of all ages at McCoy Stadium.
