Mavs Prez Live on Friday Night Fenway

PRESS RELEASE – Red Sox legend Bob Stanley will be on the Yawkey Way stage as a guest of Tom Caron Friday April 29th at 5:30 pm before the Red Sox host the Seattle Mariners.  Caron, who hosts the Red Sox pre-game show Friday Night Fenway, will be speaking with Stanley about his current role as President of the Seacoast Mavericks (Rochester, NH) of the newly formed Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) as well as his role as a member of the FCBL Board of Directors. Stanley has been influential in the development of this new summer college baseball league based in New England. 

This night also marks the 25th anniversary of the night Roger Clemens struck out 20 Seattle Mariners and Stanley and TC will take a look back to this historical record.

“I am excited about talking about my new roles in the FCBL.  I have enjoyed being part of the development of this league and the Seacoast Mavericks team.  We are going to have some real exciting college players here in New England this summer,” said Stanley. 

The FCBL will start its inaugural season on June 9th and part of the mission of the league is to provide a highly competitive atmosphere for some of the nation’s best college baseball players with many of them coming from New England.  This summer the FCBL will have teams in Rochester, NH (Mavericks), Nashua, NH (Silver Knights), Martha’s Vineyard, MA (Sharks), and Torrington, CT (Titans).

Chris Hall, Commissioner of the FCBL, said Stanley has been “A tremendous asset to the Futures League and has made a major impact on the Maverick franchise.”

Stanley was a member of the Red Sox on the night Clemens struck out 20. “I actually warmed up in the 9th that night.  I was pretty sure Roger had things in control,” said Stanley.

Hall, Mavericks owner Dave Hoyt, and Mavericks Director of Baseball Operations Mike Daboul will also be on hand with Stanley.
