Michelle Emerle, one of the organizers of the event, encouraged baseball fans to bring their cameras. “Visitors can stand with the trophy and ask a family member or Red Sox staff member to take a photo,” she wrote in an email.
It will mark just the second time a World Series trophy has come to Groton. “This is a very exciting event and a wonderful way to kick off our upcoming softball season,” Kate Shamberger, board member of GDYSL, said.
The independent softball league for girls age 4-15 is conducting its registration drive now, and girls can still register at the event for the spring softball season and the $25 late fee will be waived for that day. For more information on softball, visit GDYSL.com.
This event is made possible by a grant from the Town of Groton’s Lecture Fund.
