This week, we had a chance to sit down and talk with Geoff Iacuessa, the President and General Manager of the Portland Sea Dogs - the Double-A minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. We learned more about how the team is planning to keep people safe at Hadlock Field this year, some of the promotions they have coming up, what their role in the Red Sox system is, some of Geoff's favorite baseball memories and more!
