There are plenty of opponents on BC's schedule that I wonder why we play. I don't question our annual exhibition against the Red Sox in Spring Training. Beyond serving as a recruiting tool, the BC-Red Sox game now serves as a sign of Spring for BC fans.
The series took a break last year due to scheduling conflicts. BC has never won, although they've come close a few times. Thursday will be BC's chance to change the series. Although the game doesn't really count towards BC's record, a good showing should give them confidence to handle the rest of their games down in Florida this week.
