The team will compete in the Triple-A East league and will play home games at the newly assembled Polar Park in Worcester. Additionally, Polar Park will serve as the Red Sox’s alternative throughout April. Up to 28 players will train in Worcester before the Triple-A season. The Worcester Red Sox are tentatively scheduled to begin their inaugural season in Buffalo on May 4th and host the first game at Polar Park against Syracuse on May 11th. The WooSox were originally scheduled to begin their season on April 6th and host their home opener a week later but Major League Baseball is pushing back the start of the Triple A Season by a month. This delay was made so the Triple-A season could better align with the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination timeline. The Worcester Red Sox succeed the Pawtucket Red Sox, who had been a Red Sox affiliate since 1970.
