In the latest edition of our Baseball Across the Commonwealth series, we travel south to Salem, Va., home of the Salem Red Sox. The Red Sox are the Class A Advanced affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, and compete in the historic Carolina League. We get a chance to chat with Salem General Manager Allen Lawrence about the team and what makes their gameday environment special.
Plus, even though we weren't able to talk with a local brewery, I give you a rundown of some of the best spots in the area to stop in for a beer. There's plenty of options, so you'll want to make sure to pay attention!
