PawSox uniform patch to honor late owner

The Pawtucket Red Sox announced Tuesday that players will wear a patch on their uniforms honoring the late PawSox owner Ben Mondor, who died last October.

The 5.5-by-3.25-inch patch, with the name "BEN" on it, will be affixed to the right sleeve of the team's home uniforms.

“Ben always wore his love of the PawSox on his sleeve so it’s only fitting that we carry BEN on our sleeve for the 2011 season,” said PawSox president Mike Tamburro.
