HOLY CROSS ALUM EDWARD BENNETT WILLIAMS
WORCESTER, MA – Only a few hundred general admission tickets remain - priced at just $15 apiece - for the much-anticipated college football matchup between the College of the Holy Cross Crusaders and the Colgate University Raiders on Saturday, October 23 at 5:00 p.m. at Worcester’s Polar Park. Nearly 9,000 tickets have already been sold for “The EBW Classic,” the first-ever football game at Polar Park, home of the Worcester Red Sox. The diamond is in the final stages of being transformed into a gridiron.
General admission tickets, which can be purchased at the Polar Park box office, by visiting polarpark.com/holycross, or by calling (508) 500-1000, allow fans the opportunity to watch the game from any of the flexible seating areas (red seats) throughout the concourse of the ballpark as well as the right field party deck and Craft Beer Corner.
This key Patriot League rivalry game is presented by Christie Campus Health. The late Edward Bennett Williams was America’s preeminent trial lawyer and was an avid sportsman. He was president of Washington’s Super Bowl champions and owned the World Champion Baltimore Orioles. Mentor to WooSox Chairman & Principal Owner and Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Larry Lucchino, EBW was loyal to his alma mater, serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees and helping to create the Patriot League.
Polar Park gates will open at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 23 with kickoff slated for 5:00 p.m. All Polar Park concessions, including Coney Island Hot Dogs, BT’s Smokehouse, Wonder Bar Pizza, and Wormtown, among other popular spots, will be open before and throughout the game.
The National Anthem will be performed by the Holy Cross student a cappella group “Fools on the Hill”. Pregame and halftime performances will feature the “Holy Cross Goodtime Marching Band”. The Holy Cross Family Weekend MVP will be honored and presented with the Dr. Eddie Anderson Award following the game.
Fans can find a helpful parking map at woosox.com/parking.
Spectrum News 1 will produce and televise the contest live throughout Central Massachusetts. The game will also be shown nationally on ESPN+.
“The Worcester Red Sox are pleased to fulfill one of the visions of Polar Park with this partnership,” said Worcester Red Sox Chairman and Principal Owner Larry Lucchino,. “Thanks to Edward Bennett Williams, Holy Cross has played a major role in my life, and it is wholly appropriate that this respected neighbor be the first to demonstrate our ballpark’s versatility as a civic asset.”
Edward Bennett Williams, the legendary lawyer and sportsman, was Lucchino’s mentor and a proud alumnus of Holy Cross. The principal at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C., EBW was also president and part-owner of Washington’s NFL club and owner of the Baltimore Orioles.

“All of us with the WooSox are pleased to host our neighbors up on the hill overlooking Polar Park,” said Worcester Red Sox General Manager and Executive Vice President/Business & Real Estate Dan Rea.
“We are excited to collaborate with the Red Sox organization to bring the first-ever college football game to Polar Park,” said Marcus Blossom, Holy Cross Director of Athletics. “One of our strategic objectives as a department is to further the establishment of Holy Cross Athletics within the fabric of Worcester, and this game is another step towards achieving that goal. I know the entire Holy Cross community will enjoy this beautiful ballpark and a revitalized Kelley Square.”
Holy Cross has a long history of football excellence and will enter the 2021 season having won back-to-back Patriot League titles. In total, the Crusaders have won eight league championships and will return 12 all-conference selections to the gridiron this fall. Entering its 126th season in 2021-22, the Holy Cross football program is one of the most storied in New England, having featured such greats as Gordie Lockbaum, George Connor, and Bill Osmanski. More than 80 Crusaders have gone on to play professional football, including current Detroit Lion Kalif Raymond ’16. In his three years coaching the Crusaders, head coach Bob Chesney has won two league titles, seen 35 all-conference selections, and was named the 2019 Patriot League Coach of the Year.
While Polar Park opened on May 11 for the first of 60 Worcester Red Sox home games during the 2021 Triple-A baseball season, the WooSox and City of Worcester leaders have plans to use the ballpark for a number of different events both during the season and off-season.
