NESN’s Tom Caron on Red Sox Oddities in London
With The Sox playing in London this weekend, he explained some of the eccentricities of playing in a country that has no official baseball field.
Our very own Sports Insider Tom Caron was kind enough to talk to The Shark Morning Show today with roughly 3,200 miles of Atlantic Ocean between us!
"It's not as bad as we expected, it's short there's no doubt, 385 feet to dead center. It's actually not as wide open as we thought, for a round soccer stadium, but it's very similar to Oakland as far as the foul territory.
It's definitely going to be very different, the crowd is going to be very different during the game, if you've ever watched soccer, they sing and they chant, so that's going to be a lot of fun as well." - Tom Caron on The Red Sox playing in London, England
Saturday's game is at 1:10pm and Sunday's is 10:10am so make sure you don't miss it!
