HALIFAX - Red Sox Nation in Nova Scotia, you won’t want to miss this.
The Boston Red Sox are bringing the World Series trophy to town this week as they visit Halifax as part of a two-day tour put on by the team fan group Bluenose Bosox Brotherhood, and the Nova Scotia Tourism Agency.
The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in downtown Halifax will be holding an invite-only event on Wednesday afternoon, and on Thursday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., there will be a public viewing of the famous trophy won by the Red Sox last year for fans at the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame.
The ties between Nova Scotia and the Red Sox date back to the 1960s, and last month, the team held its annual Nova Scotia day at Fenway Park.
Joining the trophy on the trip to Halifax are former Red Sox player turned TV host Steve Lyons, and Dr. Charles Steinburg, executive vice president and senior advisor to the president of the Red Sox.
