About Last Night: Bristol Pirates, June 28th, 2016
This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my presumed return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. Last night I visited Bristol, Virginia, the fourth stop on my 10-team Appy League road trip.
June 28: Boyce Cox Field, home of the Bristol Pirates (Rookie-level affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates)
Opponent: Greeneville Astros, 7:00 p.m. start time
Boyce Cox Field, from the outside: This is the entrance to the park; the field is down that pathway and to the right.
Boyce Cox Field, from within:
Culinary Creation: Bird’s Nest (the Pirates’ version of a Frito pie, $3) and a chili dog ($2)
Ballpark Character: Dewayne Woods, retired Army soldier turned volunteer ballpark pirate.
