(NEWS CENTER) - The Boston Red Sox have fired up the entire region yet again with their third trip to the World Series in the last decade. Who could have predicted a 93 loss team would be on the verge of winning a World Championship just 12 months later?
NEWS CENTER wants to go along for the ride so we will be bringing you ROAD TO THE WORLD SERIES, a 30 minute local pregame show Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30PM to get you ready for the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals Fall Classic. NEWS CENTER's Lee Goldberg will be LIVE in Boston setting the scene from Fenway Park while Pat Callaghan, Bill Green and Caroline Cornish serve as hosts from Portland. Other contributors include NEWS CENTER rookie A.J. Burnett letting you know what to expect in the weather department at Fenway and NEWS CENTER Sports' social media guy Jeff Schools including you photos, Tweets, Facebook posts and emails about the all things Red Sox!
Guests you ask? Of course we will have guests. Since this Boston Red Sox team is so closely linked to Portland, we will have the radio play by play voice of the Portland Sea Dogs Mike Antonellis on to give us his unique perspective after seeing many of these World Series bound Sox play right here at Hadlock for the Sea Dogs. NEWS CENTER will also try to even the scales...even if just a little...by bringing you the St. Louis perspective from a member of the St. Louis media. Lastly, how could we have any local sporting show on TV without the one, the only, Maine's own lovable comic, Bob Marley? We know two things; Bob loves the Red Sox and Bob LOVES talking about the Red Sox.
As we mentioned earlier, we want YOUR participation in this show. This is such a celebration and fun time, we want to see and hear about your Red Sox Fever! First, we want your Red Sox photos. We want to see you, your kids, your pets or anyone flying your Red Sox pride in pictures. Send any photos to photos@WCSH6.com and you might get to see you photo on TV.
Secondly we want your comments, questions or even predictions about the Sox in the Series. Tell us who you think will win and why, tell us who your favorite Red Sox player is or just simply say GO SOX! How can you get your comments to us...we knew you'd ask. We have a whole bunch of ways to get to us. If you want to drop us an email , send it to 5Q@WCSH6.com, if you want to send us a Tweet, send it to ANY of our Twitter accounts, just add the hash tag #Soxon6 .
If you like Facebook the best, just follow this LINK to our NEWS CENTER Fifth Quarter Facebook page and leave your comments or question right there. We will get to as many Tweets, emails, photos and Facebook posts as we can, but yours MIGHT be seen on TV!
We can't wait to talk with you about the Red Sox in the World Series again! See you Wednesday at 7:30P only on WCSH 6 and WCSH6.com!
