Sending Holiday Cheer to our Troops!


Greetings PawSox Fans!

Earlier this morning, Paws attended the press conference for the 14th Annual Operation Holiday Cheer at the Army National Guard Armory in Warwick. Operation Holiday Cheer sends Care Packages to about 350-400 Rhode Island Troops serving our Country, in all branches of the military.

   The Care packages contain some toiletries and razors from CVS, Ocean State Job Lot sends some games and playing cards, Dunkin Donuts sends coffee, they get coffee syrup, the PawSox will send out some programs and other items to these brave men and women for a little bit of Rhode Island!


So many Rhode Islanders help to make Operation Holiday Cheer a great success. Lieutenant Governor Daniel McKee plays a major role in getting it done with his Staff. Lt. Governor McKee (L) and his Chief of Staff, Tony Silva pose for a picture with Paws…



Paws met with the Rhode Island Director of Veterans Affairs, the Big Guy, Kasim Yarn. Kasim gave a spectacular speech explaining that although Rhode Island is such a small state, the people who live here are very passionate and caring about our men and women serving in the military! 



     Paws took a picture with Master Sergeant Daniel Delayo (L) and Captain Sean Fitzpatrick…


       Captain Fitzpatrick told everyone how nice it was to receive a package in 2009 when he was at Gitmo and in 2012 when he was stationed in Kuwait. He said everything was helpful and made his think of Rhode Island. 


      Master Sergeant Delayo agree and explained its nice to get stuff from back home in Rhode Island. He received care packages in 2008 while in Iraq and 2010 while in Afghanistan.


    We had a chance to chat with Master Sergeant Delayo and Captain Fitzpatrick when they were meeting everyone, and I asked what they liked the best about the care packages. They said they really enjoy the coffee and everything else, but they really enjoy reading the letters from people in Rhode Island, especially the kids.

   Chief Silva told me that they have a letter writing campaign with some area school children, that write letters to our troops in all branches of the military. “Its very heartwarming for these men and women>” Chief Silva said.

   Here is our sincere request. Please take a moment to send a letter to the troops via email to me. I assure you when we return to the armory on November 19th, your letter(s) will be placed in a care package. Please let me know if you would like me to block out your email address in the subject line, just write Troops, delete, and I will handle it. 

  Please share this with everyone you know asking them to do the same. Our goal is to get at least 2,000 letters! Please send letters to

  These brave men and women of our military protect our Freedom and Safety, on foreign lands, and protect us in Rhode Island, always being………..”Here For You!”

    Looking forward to the thousands of emails          

    Thank You Ladies and Gentlemen of the Military for your service!

     Yours in Baseball,

     Rick Medeiros 


The Curse of the Billy Goat!


Greetings PawSox Fans!

With the Cleveland Indians resting and waiting for the National League Championship season to end, the Cubs Fans are more excited than ever as they inched a little closer to the World Series last night, beating the Dodgers 8-4, behind former PawSox/Red Sox Pitcher, Jon Lester.

No one is more excited than one of our own, a member of the PawSox Sales Staff, Mike Lyons. Mike was born and raised in Chicago and could walk to Wrigley Field. He went to his first game during the 1950’s and it was love at first sight. He told me how he and his friends would clean the bleachers at Wrigley Field, and get a ticket to the next game. ‘

In the 50’s, a bleacher ticket was about a buck, and Mike said he went to as many games as he could, and that Ernie Banks became his favorite player. Mike was there on August 15th, 1964 when then Mayor Daley, declared August 15th Ernie Banks Day in Chicago. Mike told me he will always remember how Banks started his speech: “First, I want to thank God for making me an American and giving me the ability to become a major league baseball player,”


Mike told me about how his mom would make him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a bologna sandwich and go to the game. He laughed as he told me, “By the time I ate the peanut butter and jelly, the jelly had seeped into the Wonder Bread and it was so tasty.” He also told us that when he played sports, he always wanted to wear number 14, the same number Banks had.

Needless to say, Mike is very excited with his Cubs winning and getting closer to a World Series trip. When he shows up here at the ballpark, dressed in full Cubs gear, its met with some frowns, including myself, being this is PawSox/Red Sox Country! He explains that he loves all the New England Sports teams, and cheers for them, except when they play a Chicago team.

Naturally, PawSox Special Assistant to the President, and Top Ball Girl for the Red Sox, Jackie Dempsey, along with Special Assistant to the President and General Manager, Joe Bradlee are not impressed with the Cubs gear…


I reminded Mike of the Cubs, “Billy Goat Curse.” He stated, “there’s no curse, its just an excuse because the Cubbies had some stinky team!” If you recall, Red Sox Nation had a curse of our own…The Curse of the Bambino:

Boston Red Sox Babe Ruth

Boston Red Sox Babe Ruth

The Curse of the Bambino was a superstition evolving from the failure of the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series in the 86-year period from 1918 to 2004. While some fans took the curse seriously, most used the expression in a joking manner.[This misfortune began after the Red Sox sold star player Babe Ruth sometimes called The Bambino, to the New York Yankees in the off-season of 1919–1920. Before that point, the Red Sox had been one of the most successful professional baseball franchises, winning the first World Series and amassing five World Series titles. After the sale they went without a title for decades, even while the Red Sox won four American League championships from 1946 to 1986, as the previously lackluster Yankees became one of the most successful franchises in North American professional sports.The curse became a focal point of the Yankee/Red Sox rivalry over the years.

Talk of the curse as an ongoing phenomenon ended in 2004, when the Red Sox came back from a 0–3 best-of-seven deficit to beat the Yankees in the 2004 American Championship series, and went on to win the World Series.  The curse had been such a part of Boston culture that when a “reverse curve” road sign on Longfellow Bridge over the city’s busy Storrow Drive, had graffiti that read “Reverse The Curse”


The Curse was Reversed and the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004


City Officials took it down after the Sox won the Championship…



The Chicago Cubs have their own curse…The Curse of the Billy Goat:

The Curse of the Billy Goat is a curse that was supposedly placed on the Chicago Cubs in 1945 when Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave game 4 of the World Series against the Detroit Tigers at Wrigley Field because the odor of his pet goat (named Murphy) was bothering other fans. He was outraged and allegedly declared “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more,” which has been interpreted to mean that there would never be another World Series game won at Wrigley Field. The Cubs have not won a World Series championship since 1908 or played in the World Series since 1945…


    Earlier this month the Cubs Fans had their own reverse the curse party at the Bill Goat Tavern!



       Mike Lyons is quite confident this is the year the Cubbies win the World Series! The Cubs head to Wrigley Field to try to wrap up their series with the Dodgers and then attempt to Reverse the Curse and win the World Series Championship! Mike Lyons will keep a card of his favorite player in his pocket when he watches the game!



        Please check out our website at for the upcoming Ball Yard Sale and Halloween Trick or Treat. Although it’s the off-season, there is still activity at McCoy Stadium, and we are……..”Here For You!”

  Love hearing from you

Former PawSox Players Then and Now Still Playing!

Greetings PawSox Fans!

     This is the time of year where sports Fans can get their fix of football, hockey and playoff baseball. It’s actually a nice time of year. Not too hot or too cold, the leaves change color and look beautiful while on the trees. However, once the leaves end up on your lawn, and the beauty immediately vanishes. 

   During the baseball playoffs, if your team isn’t in the mix, it’s a good possibility you pick a team to cheer for. In watching the playoffs, there are so many familiar faces. With the exception of the Toronto Blue Jays, the Cubs, the Dodgers and the Indians have former PawSox players on their teams.

  Like a lot of Fans, a part of me want the Cubs to win the World Series. I am a big Fan of Rich Hill and would love to see him win a World Series championship. With that said, I am also a big Fan of Cubs Pitcher Jon Lester, so as long as one of them take it, I’ll be happy. 

 Then: Rich Hill played for the PawSox in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015.


   Now: Rich is now pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and is doing very well. In last nights game, Hill got the win, with the Dodgers shutting out the Cubs 6-0.


   Another Pitcher playing for the Cubs is Josh Fields. He played for the PawSox during the 2012 season.




      Now: Josh a relief pitcher for the Dodgers…


     With Jon Lester being one of the best pitchers in the rotation for the Cubs, its hard not to root him on to go all the way. I am also a big Jon Lester Fan. A great guy with a great family. 

    Another former players with the Dodgers is PawSox Fan Favorite Josh Reddick. Josh is a real dirt dog who plays hard every game. He loves to compete. Josh spent three seasons with the PawSox from 2009 to 2011.




   Now: Patrolling the outfield, and loves to chase down the tough catches…

 Then: Lester pitched for the PawSox in 2006 and 2007. We even had a bobblehead made of him…



       Now: One of the best for the Cubs…


      Another PawSox player with the Cubs is John Lackey. He wore a PawSox uniform on a rehab assignment in 2011…




      With the Cubs…


   Then: Cather David Ross, played for the PawSox in 2008, and then returned for a rehab assignment in 2013..


    Now: Behind the plate for the Cubbies…



           Representing the American league are two former PawSox players. CocCo Crisp and Pitcher Andrew Miller. 

      Coco Crisp played a couple of games with the PawSox at the start of the 2006 season. The night he was here there were not any barricades set up outside the clubhouse entrance, and there was a large group looking to get an autograph from Coco. When he came out the door everyone rushed to him to have him sign. There was a lot of pushing and shoving, and after signing many autographs, he was concerned that someone may get injured, and retreated back in the entrance. 

   Then: Having some yuks in the PawSox dugout…


        When Coco was involved with that little dust-up against the Rays, he must have watched the Matrix…


  Now: Now playing with the Indians, looking like he just put a Sour Patch Kid candy in his mouth…

     Also with the Indians is Andrew Miller who played for the PawSox for the 2011 and 2012 season.



    Now: A relief pitcher with the Indians. One of the tallest in the game at 6’7″!



     When you check the rosters of all the teams involved, there are several who have played at McCoy, Lonnie Chisenhall, Mike Clevinger, Corey Nuber and Josh Tomlin all had to chance to play in front of the best Fans in the world! The PawSox Fans are the Best! Thanks for being Fans and because of that, we are………….”Here For You!”

Two Former Broadcasters Meet in Foxboro!

Greetings PawSox Fans!

Just in case you missed it, Tom Brady is back with the New England Patriots, and led the team to a 35-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, completing his 5,000th pass in the process. Welcome Back!

Also at Gillette Stadium for the game was two former PawSox Broadcasters…Dan Hoard(L), now the radio voice of the Cincinnati Bengals, and Bob Socci, the voice of the New England Patriots…(Great pic by Louriann Mardo)

      Bob Socci was the PawSox Radio Broadcaster for the 2013 season and has been with the Pats ever since…


    He truly enjoys being the radio voice of the Pats, which is quite evident in his enthusiastic broadcasting…


     Before joining the Patriots, Socci’s previous broadcasting experience included 16 seasons as the play-by-play voice of Navy Midshipman football (1997–2012),[11 seasons as the voice of Navy basketball (1997–2008), and a decade of calling Patriot League basketball games for networks including CSTV, ESPNU, and CBS Sports Network



        He also hosts the Bob Socci Show…socci


     Dan Hoard was a PawSox Radio Broadcaster from 2006 to 2011. During that time, he juggled his schedule being the voice of Cincinnati Bearcats Football and basketball…



     Now Hoard is the broadcaster for the Bengals…(Sorry about the loss for you Dan)


     Dan was not only a great friend and outstanding broadcaster, he has a great sense of humor and someone who knows where to eat any time, day or night. Dan introduced me to Ted’s Montana Grill for a Bison Burger, but more importantly after a very long game in Buford, Georgia playing the Gwinnett Braves we went to a Waffle House..(Actual Waffle House in Georgia)


           When in Syracuse to play the Chiefs, after the game we went to Change of Pace, a sports bar owned by Steve Grilli, the losing picture in the Longest Game. (He’s wearing the tie)grilli

      One thing about Dan I learned over the years, he is always very well prepared. He always did great interviews. Here he interviews Marco Scutaro who was on a rehab assignment with the PawSox



    He interviewed former Red Sox General Manager, Mike Hazen, who recently was named the General Manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks…



        While broadcasting a PawSox game, Chef Ken Bowdish surprised Dan with a SmorgasHoard! Sandwiches, piled high, onion rings, fries, pickles and other junk food.




       Congrats to both for making it to The Bigs! A special thanks to Dan for showing me how to put pictures on the blog. Thanks for being part of the PawSox Family and living by our motto………”Here For You!”

   Love hearing from you

Tug a Truck with Paws

Greetings PawSox Fans!

  Yesterday, (Saturday) Paws made an appearance at the Fire Truck Pull for Special Olympics as part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The event was held in the lot Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts.


    Paws met with members of the Mansfield Police Department…


   Paws met with a lot of the PawSox Fans at the event…



     The competition was a team of 12-15 would pull a fire truck 50 feet. They teams were timed and had 2 chances, with the fastest time be recorded. The first team to go was Tough Tuggers. Special Olympian Power Lifter Bob, is holding the 2016 fire trucks Pull sign…



       If Bob looks familiar, it’s because he friends with Paws and Sox since meeting them at the Law Enforcement Polar Plunge in Sharon, Massachusetts. Bob jumped in the ice-cold water as Captain America…



          The teams gave it their all…


     Paws was a team of one! Although strong as a bear, he tried his best to pull the truck, but didn’t have much success.


             Paws did give it a full effort, but they didn’t use a stop watch to time Paws, they used a sun dial!


            When it was over, Paws got checked out by Veterinarian Micheal Gerber who drives and operates the PawsMobile, a mobile animal hospital. Paws was given a thumbs up by the doctor and found to be in perfect health!



      Paws had a great time, for a great cause…The Special Olympics.  Before the competition began, Sarah read the Olympians Creed…”Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in my attempt.”


       Hopefully we see you at the Ball Yard sale….Check out all the details at   We will be………”Here For You!”

   Love hearing from you

A Great Papi Tribute to End the Regular Season!

Greetings PawSox Fans!

The Red Sox are officially in the Post Season taking on the Cleveland Indians tonight at 8:08 at Progressive Field! Not sure how many watched the San Fran Giants and the Mets battle it out in a loser goes home game, it was a nail biter until the top of the 9th when Conor Gillaspie jacked a 3 run homerun and that’s all that was need to win the game. It’s a moment in his career he will always remember.



Sadly, its the end of the Big Papi Era, and he will be missed. On his last regular season game at Fenway, the tribute was Spectacular and very memorable. However, prior to the Tribute at Fenway, Teams around the league thanked Papi with their own tribute…

In Kansas City before a Royals game, Papi was presented with some very nice gifts, including the famous BBQ sauce…

The Chicago White Sox gifted him with a cigar humidor…



While in San Diego to play the Padres, Papi was given a surfboard bearing his image. Helping with the presentation is former Red Sox/PawSox Broadcasting great, Don Orsillo…(Far right)


    However, the tribute to Big Papi was a total Event! It was exciting to watch. To see all those athletes from the Celtics, Bruins and Pats was incredible, and at times emotional. Think of the planning that went on behind the scenes to put this flawless Papi Tribute together. Contacting the players, making travel arrangements and having the entire ceremony move along smoothly.

   In speaking with PawSox Team President Charles Steinberg, who was at the tribute, he explained, “There are so many people who helped put this whole thing together.” He went on to say, “The list of everyone involved is incredibly long. It was the epitome of a collaborative effort to make this tribute what is was.” You can bet that Steinberg was right in the middle of putting it together along with Red Sox Vice President/Director of Fan Services and Entertainment, Sarah Mckenna. Sarah met with those involved in the tribute to go over the last-minute details…


   Sarah meets with Red Sox Senior Director of Fan Services and Entertainment, Stephanie Maneikis…


     Stephanie ensures that everything is perfect…


     And then its Show Time!  Since I was not at the game, I was very pleased that friend and fantastic photographer Patrick McShane was, and I “borrowed” his photos…Thanks Pat!

     The Green Monster had a nice thank you…



         Big Papi greeted the Fans…



       His great friend Pedro Martinez was there…


       Jim Rice (L) and Carl “Yaz” Yastzemski were on hand!



           The overpass over the Mass Pike will now be known as the David Ortiz Bridge!



         Big Papi poses for some photos with Bigger Papi, his Dad, Leo Ortiz…


   Uncle Sam was there…


     Thank you Big Papi for all you’ve done both on and off the field. Lets do it again, and get that World Series Trophy back in Boston! 

   Having met, and gotten to know Ortiz, his heart is as big as his swing. One of the best stories that always comes to mind, one that never gets old, is when Ortiz was on rehab assignment with the PawSox. There was a woman named Donna who was confined to a wheelchair. Her dream was to meet Big Papi. Subsequently, they met and took some photos and he signed autographs for her…


    Donna gave Otiz a necklace and asked if he could please wear it during a game. Ortiz told her, “I will wear it tomorrow, so make sure you watch the game!” The following evening Donna sent me a photo she took from the TV and there was Papi wearing the necklace she gave him…A man of his word!


    Big Papi, if ever you swing by Rhode Island, make sure to stop by for a PawSox game..We will be………….”Here For You!”

  Love hearing from you

Tribute to Big Papi! (Preview)

Greetings PawSox Fans!

    Every member of Red Sox Nation around the world are joining in the celebration to thank David “Big Papi” Ortiz for his contributions on and off the field. I have made an effort to watch every tribute to the Big Man who helped bring World Championships to all Fans. Tomorrow, (Sunday) will cap off the Papi Weekend. It will be historic!

  Despite the not ideal weather at Fenway Park last evening, it didn’t matter to the Fans in attendance, or those who watched the ceremony and game. The Fenway Grounds Crew rolled up the tarp and the stage was set.



              Knowing that PawSox Team President Dr. Charles Steinberg would be at the game, I gave him a call. He was sitting in the dugout with Red Sox Vice President/Fan Services and Entertainment, Sarah McKenna. Both are an intricate part of not only regular pre-game ceremonies, but also in the tribute to Big Papi…


    PawSox Special assistant to the President, Jackie Dempsey, one of the top Red Sox Ball Girls, helped with the ceremonies.


      Big Papi thanked those taking part in the tribute…


     Looking very forward to tomorrow!  Thank you Papi!



      The next blog will continue with the tribute to the player who brought joy to so many people. Dont forget to check back because we are……….”Here For You!”

   Love hearing from you

National Drink a Beer Day!


  Greetings PawSox Fans!

Today is National Drink a Beer Day! So for those of you who are of legal age to enjoy the frosty, amber-colored foamed topped beverage, throw one back while watching the Sox game. But always, drink responsibly. Something just always go together, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Turkey and Dressing, Fred and Ginger, Abbott and Costello and Beer and Baseball. (Of course you can also add in hot dogs, however, National Hot Dog Day is in July)



Growing up Rhode Island, everyone knew of the slogan, “Hi Neighbor!” The Narragansett Brewing Company was our own…


    And also a sponsor of the Red Sox…



 When a Fan chooses to indulge in a beer at a sporting event, they have to be prepared for balls, bats, gloves, players, etc…heading into the stands…Many beers have been lost!



  In basketball, a player can take out a whole tray…




 It’s always nice to have a Wing Man…



Jayson Werth shows some great skills by being able to hold his beer, and still pull in a fly ball.



    During the 1959 World Series, Chicago White Sox Left Fielder, Al Smith, wore the beer from a Fan…


    Beer can be bought at some of the concessions stands, or by one of the beer vendors who make their way throughout the ballpark lugging a heavy iced down cooler. You can find these vendors making their way up and down the stairs all around McCoy Stadium. One of the beer vendors I got to know during road games was Tom “Conehead” Girot. You can see him at Coca-Cola Park in Buffalo, New York, working the Bisons games. He makes his way around the ballpark hawking ice-cold beer with his Conehead Guarantee..”If you get a warm beer from me, you get to drink it for free!”


 During one of our trips to Buffalo, there was a day game, and at night the Boston Bruins were in town to play the Buffalo Sabers, so a bunch of us went to the game and Conehead was vending there! He wears a linesman shirt…



      After playing in Buffalo, we traveled just about an hour to Rochester to play the Red Wings, and guess who was there?  The Conehead!


      It’s also said that Conehead does the Buffalo Bills games!  He is one busy vendor. 

     Hopefully the Red Sox get busy and clinch a playoff spot this evening (Wednesday). At McCoy we are all getting ready for the 2017 season. Once again, please get us your ideas and suggestions, we want to hear them all! Email or phone call is fine, and we are all………”Here For You!!”

  Love hearing from you    

   Yours in baseball,

Run and Fun to Stand Up 2 Cancer!

Greetings PawSox Fans!

Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their weekend as the weather slowly gets a bit colder by the day, perish the thought.

On Saturday night, the PawSox hosted the first ever Night Nation Run. The best way to explain it is, there is a run/jog/walk  that started near Gate A, proceeded to the football field, around the football field, back to the ballpark, around the warning track, up on the concourse and ending just about where it started. When we arrived in the morning, everything was set up and ready to go. A part of the proceeds for the event go to cancer research and has raised millions of dollars!



Slowly but surely, around 3:00pm people started showing up.



The race kicked off just around 7:30 when thousands of people arrived. Paws and Sox took part in the race, and Paws headed to the start line, warming up along the way…



They released the runners hundreds at a time…


Many runners came in costumes…




Right after the run, it was the After Party!  Paws and Sox loved it!



They took to the stage to show off their dance moves…



The young ladies dancing were absolutely tireless!



The party continued into the evening, and people loved their glow batons and necklaces…front-copy


Laser lights danced on the side of the ballpark…



The music was great, the food was awesome, there was plenty to drink and everyone had a great time!


  There were some great lighting displays and smoke machines…


    The crowd loved it!


  It was a Glowing night for a great cause…


   The Stickman suits were awesome…



    It was a spectacular time! Everyone had a great time and left behind the evidence of a fun party…



           Please keep checking for any upcoming special events. If you have any question, suggestions, ideas, please let us know. We want to hear what you have to say. Send an email to We want to hear from you! You know we will be……….”Here For You!”
