Limited Edition Grand Slam Baseball Cans Are Out

It’s been a tough year for the Red Sox who have been hovering around the .500 mark all season long thanks to a myriad of injuries and team-wide under-performance.  However, with the trade deadline in the rear-view mirror, the team getting healthier, and a modest recent winning streak, hope springs eternal amongst the Fenway faithful.  Enjoy the pennant races and the fight for those final two wild card positions with the beer that was synonymous with the Sox for a large portion of the team’s history.  The Narragansett Lager 16oz baseball can will be available in stores for the stretch drive of the season….perfect with hot dogs, peanuts & baseball action.  So, as the legendary Curt Gowdy would say before every Sox broadcast, “Hi Neighbor, have a Gansett!” Here’s a Narragansett Baseball commercial from the 1950’s and narrated by Curt Gowdy himself.

Here are some images of memorabilia from when Narragansett was the official beer of Red Sox Baseball.
