As Americans, we should be guaranteed the right to sit in the backyard with a beer and a burger and listen to a ballgame on the radio on Memorial Day.
Yet inexplicably, the Red Sox are not scheduled to play today.
NESN is saving the day, however. They’ll have the New Britain-Portland Class AA game at 1 p.m. Casey Kelly is pitching, too.
Kelly is experiencing some growing pains this season. He’s 0-3 with a 4.32 ERA and in his last 12 innings has allowed seven runs on seven hits and six walks. But he’s 20 and pitching in a league with a ton of prospects.
Ryan Kalish is starting to make a case for himself. He has seven hits in his last nine at-bats, two of them home runs. He is hitting .288 on the season with eight homers and 29 RBI in 40 games.
So catch the Sea Dogs today.
