Worcester Tornadoes Stop the Slide

Filed in Sports by on August 17, 2009 0 Comments


The Tornadoes broke out of their slump yesterday beating the Sussex SkyHawks 12-2.  I will have to say it was highly likely that it was due to my family’s presence at the game.  OK, OK maybe not.  I recently wrote about the Worcester Tornadoes as a great value for family entertainment.  We were not disappointed.  The heat was a bit of a damper since the temperature was in the low 90’s.  My kids were troopers though just like many of the kids that were there because it was Tykes Club Sunday.

Jusef Frias was very much in control for this outing which held Sussex to only 2 runs.  The Tornadoes had been on a bit of a skid since they were in 1st place the last time I wrote about them.  Yesterday’s win brings them up to 2 games behind Brockton and Quebec that are currently tied for first.  The Tornadoes will be taking Brockton on next weekend.

As much as my kids like sports and the Tornadoes the highlight of the outing was the Whirly Pop that they received from the Tykes Club crew.  A Whirly Pop is a huge lollipop with many different flavors and colors.  They also handed out a notice for an event at the 5&Diner at Lincoln Plaza 525 Lincoln Street, where the players are going to be waiting on customers from 5-8pm on tonight (Monday).

Safety Notes(especially for kids):

  • Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field is a small cozy park.  So cozy that if you are not paying attention you can get hit by a ball.  It is easy to forget that when you are walking around buying food or ice cream.
  • Bring something to sit on like a stadium pad or even a towel.  The seats can get hot.
  • Use plenty of sunscreen
  • Drink plenty of water
