Should be interesting in Southern California as you can listen to the game on the way to work in the morning :tongue:


The Red Sox tradition of playing a morning game on Patriots Day is getting tweaked for 2007. With the start of the Boston Marathon pushed up to 10 a.m., the Red Sox have obtained permission from Major League Baseball and the players' union to start their Patriots Day game, traditionally an 11:05 start, an hour earlier.

"While we aren't 100 percent certain, we're fairly confident this will be our first 7 a.m. start in club annals, albeit on the East Coast," said Tim Mead, the Angels' vice president of media relations.

I don't personally remember this, but I think I read that Veeck tried this with the Sox once or twice around '76 or '77.

I don't recall all the facts but I believe it was a 10AM start time and a McDonald's promotion.

Maybe as a new promotion with our sponsor we should start a game at 7:11 AM
