The Boston Red Sox 2013 World Series Trophy will still be at Medford City Hall from 9-10 a.m. and at John Brewers Tavern from 3-7 p.m. on Saturday, April 26.

However, due to expected rain, the Krystle Campbell Softball Tournament has been postponed to 11 a.m. Sunday, April 27, with its conclusion (the championship and consolation games) on Saturday, May 3, starting at 10:30 a.m.

The Columbus Park ribbon cutting will take place before the games on Saturday, May 3, at 9:30 a.m. The Medford Little League Parade has been moved to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 3.


The Boston Red Sox 2013 World Series Trophy will be in Medford and Malden this Saturday, April 26.

From 9-10 a.m., the trophy will be at Columbus Park in Medford for the first Krystle Campbell Softball Tournament.

Photos with the trophy will be available for a $10 donation to the Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund (bring your own camera).

At 9:30 a.m., Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn will cut a ribbon at the newly renovated field. At 10 a.m., Campbell’s parents, William and Patricia, will throw out the first pitch.

Campbell, a 29-year-old Medford native and Arlington resident, was one of three people killed in the bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon. Campbell played softball at Medford High School.

Medford High will play Billerica at 10 a.m. in the tournament’s first game. Arlington Catholic will then play Swampscott at 1 p.m. On Sunday, the losers will play at 11 a.m., winners at 2 p.m. for the championship.

At 11 a.m. Saturday, William and Patricia Campbell will serve as grand marshals of the Medford Little League parade, which leaves from Medford City Hall and then proceeds down Riverside Avenue to Freedom Way and Drane Field.


From 3-7 p.m. Saturday, the trophy will be at John Brewers Tavern, 7 Highland Ave., Malden. Again, photos will be available for a $10 donation to the scholarship fund (and again, bring your own camera).

In addition to the trophy, the Red Sox mascot, Wally the Green Monster, and Medford High’s acapella group, Los Rubios, will be at the tavern, and a pair of Red Sox tickets will be given away. Los Rubios will also sing the national anthem at the tournament.

So Medford residents could bring their kids to the start of the tournament at Columbous Park on Saturday from 9 - 10am to see the trophy. But it's going to rain. So now they can see the trophy instead at Medford City Hall on Saturday from 9 - 10am. I applaude the change of venu on the same date and time so the kids that have been looking forward to it can still see it. However. Why is the Malden viewing in a drinking establishment. Where some parents may be reluctant to bring their kids to view the trophy? There are plenty of other places that the trophy could have been displayed for a few hours in Malden. Like one of the school gyms, or City Hall Plaza. Just a thought people.

Wally the Green Monster will keep us wild n crazy Maldonians in line at John Brewers.

I live in Malden, and I agree with Matthew that taking children to a "bar" like John Brewer's may be a little odd. I do know that John Brewer's is a regular restaurant, so it would be similar to taking one's family to a family restaurant that happens to have a bar (like Mexico Lindo, Jimmy's Steer House, etc.). I'm almost happy it isn't at Malden City Hall, which is a pain to access!

and hopefully, my 2-year old will have enough patience if there is a line at JB's!

Plus, be advised that the Bruins are playing at 3, so expect a HUGE crowd.
