The Brother Rice Crusader's Rugby team will be honored this Monday at U.S. Cellular Field. As the Sox prepare to take on the Tigers, the Crusader, whose Freshman, JV, and Varsity team all won State Championships, will prepare to take the field for pre-game recognition. The team's head coach, David Fee, told me,
I was just contacted and said that the Sox wanted to honor the State and National Championship Teams. I thought it was incredibly cool for our guys to be honored on a legitimate stage. This is the 1st time we have been asked to do something like that.
"It's more than "appreciation", it is an opportunity to grow the game. Appearing and behaving different than others on an legit stage. Very proud of you and the Brother Rice team. Thanks for what you're doing..."
