If you're hanging around Rhode Island this summer and looking to ironically celebrate Alex Rodriguez's recent engagement to Jennifer Lopez, boy do the PawSox have a promotion for you.
The Red Sox's Pawtucket-based Triple-A affiliate announced Thursday that they'll be throwing a Red Sox-themed engagement party for the couple in April.
From the press release:
"The Pawtucket Red Sox, ever in favor of love, will celebrate the engagement of Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez with a Red Sox-themed party Friday, April 12 at McCoy Stadium. … Recognizing the memorable moments provided by the former Yankees slugger, and the pop and movie star who visited Fenway Park in a previous romance, the PawSox will recall the 15th anniversary of the historic 2004 season on this night-some of which featured A-Rod."
The PawSox said that anyone wearing either a Jason Varitek or Bronson Arroyo jersey will get into the game for free (as reference to this moment and this moment, respectively), as will all ladies named Jennifer. The team also claims that they invited Lopez' ex-husband and Red Sox fan Ben Affleck to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
