If you’re looking for something to do on Saturday, especially with kids, the Futures at Fenway doubleheader starts at 1:05 p.m.
From a pure baseball standpoint, this is a chance to sit in great seats and watch two games. Lowell plays Hudson Valley (Rays) first before Pawtucket takes on Buffalo.
So you can see a bunch of the recent draft picks at Lowell and guys like Jose Iglesias, Dan Butler, Juan Carlos Linares and Ryan Kalish later on. Lefty Chris Hernandez is scheduled to pitch. He’s an interesting prospect in that he’s not overpowering, but he has an effective mix of pitches and a very good sense of what he can and can’t do.
Hernandez was a 2010 draft pick (out of Miami) and is already at Triple A.
If you’re toting along the kiddos, there will be Star Wars characters roaming around, discount concession prices, games, autograph sessions and more. The kids can run the bases after the second game, too. Tickets start at $5. The most expensive are $30.
