PawSox will display Cup in East Providence Saturday


EAST PROVIDENCE — The Pawtucket Red Sox, this year’s Triple-A International League champion and recipients of the coveted 2012 International League Governors’ Cup, will display the trophy at the Second Annual Watchemoket Square Day event in East Providence on Saturday, Oct. 13.

It will be available for viewing and picture-taking from 9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. near St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 81 Warren Ave.

This is the club’s third Governors’ Cup. They first won in 1973 and again in 1984. At the end of each baseball season, the three divisional leaders and a wild card team square off in best-of-5 playoffs, and the winning team of the finals is awarded the Governors' Cup, the league's championship trophy.

The Second Annual Watchemoket Square Day is a celebration of East Providence’s past, present and future. The Watchemoket Square area was once the hub of the City in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This year’s event features a parade leaving from City Hall at 9:00am and traveling to Warren Avenue where a classic car show will be held at Hot Rides Inc. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Other activities include: walking history tours by the East Providence Historical Society at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., a bazaar at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, pumpkin painting, and special menus and offers at local restaurants: Dee’s Place, The 133 Club, East Providence Yacht Club and Watchemoket Tavern. The event is open to the public and there is no admission fee.
