Meet me at the wrecking ball
Wear something pretty and pinstripe
Baseball fans have only a precious few remaining opportunities to visit one of America’s most historic ballparks before it is destroyed, as the New York Yankees are playing out the final season in the history of their 85-year-old ballpark.
With this in mind, the Brockton Rox have created a memento that they believe will entertain an especially fond reception by baseball fans in and around Boston. On Saturday, August 2 at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive a Bobble Wrecking Ball, comprised of a replica of the old stadium in New York with a wrecking ball swinging above it.
“We have tremendously passionate baseball fans in this area, and they appreciate the history of the game,” said Rox GM Brian Voelkel. “They also have very clearly placed allegiances, and we are excited to create an original piece of memorabilia that embodies both of those ideas.”
Thanks to the legendary Art Martone.
