WooSox Rewind: Worcester wins 2022 Polar Park opening series over Lehigh Valley

The Worcester Red Sox opened their 2022 home schedule last week having to deal with a little rain, a bit of snow, some chilly temperatures, and finally some sunshine. But none of that mattered much for the WooSox as they went on to a 4-2 series win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia Phillies).
