Along with being the unofficial last day of Summer, Labor Day is also the last day of the regular season for of most minor league baseball. To get our last fix, J., R. and I headed to Worcester to see the Tornadoes take on the Brockton Rox.

It was a disappointingly small crowd at Fitton Field for the final game of the regular season. The box score claimed 1,229, but I would be surprised if there were more than 1,000 people in the ballpark. The nice thing was that it gave the game a McCoy Stadium circa late-70's, early-80's relaxed feel to it. The fact that Rich Gedman and Roger Lafrancois (both Worcester coaches) were in the ballpark only added to the feeling.

The game itself was a see-saw affair, with Brockton finally winning in 11 innings 7-6. It was just a nice, low-stress, uncrowded day at the ballpark.

I'm looking forward to next season already!
