Dustin Pedroia Returns to His Roots in Pawtucket

When he’s not treating teammates to lobster Mac and cheese at Capital Grille, Dustin Pedroia is rehabbing with the Pawsox, looking to get back to Boston by the end of the month. Fans at Fenway are looking for a speedy return of The Laser Show but some people in Pawtucket would be just fine if he took his time.

“Great spread: Capital Grille [steak], lobster mac and cheese,” said PawSox manager Kevin Boles. “He can stay as long as he wants.”

As Sox fans know, Pedroia is no stranger to Pawtucket. Back in 2006 he was a fresh faced kid from the West Coast looking to make the big leagues while being touted as the #4 prospect in the Red Sox organization. His love for the Pawsox was evident even back then.

“The fans are great”, said Pedroia. “If you’re going to be in the Minor Leagues, this has got to be one of the best places to play.”

How to Watch

Pawsox fans in Rhode Island can catch The Laser Show this Friday, May 25th at 7pm when the Paw Sox take on the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs on YurView (channel 1004 for Cox customers).

Update

Dustin Pedroia will be activated Friday after missing 50 games recovering from knee surgery. You can still watch the Pedroia-less Pawsox on YurView New England Friday night at 7PM.
