WORCESTER – The Worcester Red Sox have their nickname — and it’s been used about town for years already.
The team will stick with the nickname “WooSox” moving forward as they prepare for their inaugural season in 2021.
SEE VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW
The announcement came Monday night at the “Who Beats the Woo Sox?” event at Mercantile Center in downtown Worcester.
The team rolled out new logos and designs for the WooSox featuring a character with the Harvey Ball Smiley Face and a “W” connected by a heart in reference to the city’s own nickname, “The Heart of the Commonwealth.”
According to Dr. Steinberg, 218 nicknames were suggested by more than 1,000 submissions.
In addition to the new logo and nickname, the team opened the team store and gift shop at Mercantile Center and also launched the online team store at GoWooSox.com.
