Blue Sox Kick Off Playoffs Thursday, Aug. 4
HOLYOKE — The second-seeded Valley Blue Sox will kick off postseason action against third-seeded North Adams this Thursday, Aug. 4 at 6:35 p.m. at MacKenzie Stadium in Holyoke.
While the Sox’ fate has been decided for a few days now, a tight battle for the fourth seed caused a delay in scheduling. With Winnipesaukee losing Tuesday night and Vermont and Upper Valley splitting their double-header, it sets up a four-way tie for fourth place in the Northern Division, which will be played out in a single-elimination, split double-header tournament on Wednesday. The winner will face top seed Sanford.
As for the Sox, they will begin proceedings on Thursday night in Holyoke. Game 2 will be played in North Adams on Friday, Aug. 5 at 6:35 p.m. If necessary, the Sox will host the final and deciding game 3 on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 6:35 p.m.
Tickets for the series can be purchased at valleybluesox.com, by calling the Blue Sox ticket office at (413) 533-1100, or at the gate on Thursday night.
