Hawksworth spent three years at Boston’s Fox 25 and currently works for the Fox affiliate in Seattle, Wash. She is the sister of Dodger’s pitcher, Blake Hawksworth, potentially giving her insider info on some players, but probably not.
For what it’s worth, Chad Finn of the Boston Globe believes she is the favorite for the job. Oh ya, and she’s pretty easy on the eyes too.
Including todays 1:05PM start against the Phillies, the Red Sox will have played seven Spring Training games without a single one being broadcast on TV. This makes about zero sense to me.
With all the hype of the new faces coming to Boston this season, I want to be able to see their first at-bats in a Sox uniform without having to book a trip to Fort Meyer’s, Florida. Come on NESN. This is Red Sox Nation, people will skip work to watch the first Spring Training game on TV but instead I have to wait until the eighth game of Spring Training to see any live baseball.
