WORCESTER – Worcester celebrated its hometeam champions on Thursday, marking the end of the Out to Lunch Concert series by declaring Aug. 20 “Bravehearts’ Day.”
The Bravehearts, owned by the Creedon family, won the Futures Collegiate Baseball League championship for the second time in its two-year history by defeating the Bristol Blues, of Connecticut, in a best two-out-of-three series.
The Bravehearts joined the league last year, playing in Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field, at The College of the Holy Cross.
This year, the team set an all-time attendance record at the field, City Manager Edward Augustus Jr. said.
“We’re just very proud as a city for what the Creedon family has done for this city, what the Bravehearts organization has done for this city and what the players and coaches have done for this city,” Augustus said. “We want to offer you a very profound thank you.”
