With Fri.'s announcement that the Red Sox' Triple-A team in Pawtucket, RI plans to move to Worcester, MA, it's notable that Rhode Island used to have a top team in a league with Boston (the Braves' forerunner). The Providence Grays won the National League title in 1879 & ‘84. And in three 2nd place seasons, 1880-2, they finished well ahead of Boston & the short-lived Worcester Ruby Legs (aka Worcesters).

Tom Brady made a rare pre-game trip to the field and spoke briefly with Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, took a few tosses and then signed a few autographs on his way back to the locker room. Brady seldom goes through that type of pre-game routine; perhaps he was looking for Nick Foles.
