3rd graders get a visit from NESN's Red Sox team | News
PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- 3rd graders at St. Brigid Catholic School in Portland got a real thrill Thursday morning when NESN Red Sox announcers Jerry Remy, Don Orsillo and Jenny Dell came to see them.
The Sox broadcast team are on a tour of New England as they prepare for the upcoming season. They took questions from the kids for about a half hour.
3rd grader Grace Veroneau said, "It was really cool and I would want them to come again."
The students also taught Don, Jenny and the Rem-Dawg a little dance they made up before getting some autographs. The broadcasters said it's fun to visit with kids, who don't ask the jaded questions that more seasoned fans want answers to. Remy said he's hoping to get more young people interested in the sport he loves so much.
Remy said, "It's nice to get with the young generation. I think baseball's gotten away from the young generation. They've turned more to football and basketball, and baseball's a great game and you'd like to see the kids continue to keep playing."
