Dunkin' Donuts Park will host the Tuesday, July 24, 2018 game between the Y-D Red Sox and the Wareham Gatemen. The Gatemen will likely be the home team since the official CCBL schedule still has the game listed at Wareham. The first pitch is scheduled for 12:30pm, which means that both teams will likely start their buses very early in the morning to practice beforehand. Tickets will be $10, according to NBC Connecticut.
This game is interesting for a couple reasons:
- It seems like the furthest (at least distance-wise) location a CCBL game has ever been played away from a team park. Dunkin' Donuts Park is a bit over 2 hours driving time (without traffic) from Clem Spillane Field in Wareham. It probably took longer for teams to travel to Nantucket and maybe Martha's Vineyard when games were played there.
- This marks a return to CCBL games being played off-Cape, which has received some backlash from fans in the past; especially with regards to when the All-Star Game was held at Fenway Park.
