Red Sox trophies, Nunez coming to New Britain


NEW BRITAIN — The New Britain Rock Cats may be the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, but they know whose backyards they reside in.

Commodities both currently and formerly tied to the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are expected to flow through New Britain Stadium in the near future.

On Monday, July 21, all three World Series trophies won this century by the Red Sox will be on display when the Rock Cats host the Altoona Curve. Gates open at 6 p.m. and fans can take photos before and during the game.

Also, infielder Eduardo Nunez, once Derek Jeter’s caddy with the Yankees and now a Twin, has joined the Rock Cats on a rehab assignment. The team is in New Hampshire this weekend and returns home Monday to start a four-game set with the Binghamton Mets.

Nunez is on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring strain. It is not known how much time he will need at New Britain while recovering from the injury. Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks is also rehabbing with the Rock Cats.
