Tip of the hat to Bacon & Biscuits where I read this first.
Last season we got to know Delwyn Young very well out beyond the right field wall at The Coke. An avid Twitter user @dweezy_24, Young would often interact with fans asking about local landmarks or places to eat. On one occasion we suggested he stop at Wawa for a late night snack. His reponse was, “What’s a Wawa?”
At the next game we called to him, pointed to the 100 foot Wawa sign in the outfield and he still didn’t appear to understand. DiPro offered to get him a Wawa sub if they won the Governor’s cup but hey… that’s history.
Good luck in the Sox organization! Hopefully you’ll be playing in the South Side but if you do happen to be with Tommy V down in Charlotte, take it easy on our Pigs.
