Red Shirts Mistaken for Red Sox
A request for Red Sox baseball tickets is a common occurrence at the headquarters of the East Hampton, Conn., Fire Department. The department’s telephone number coincides impulse for impulse with the number at Fenway Park in Boston. Connecticut baseball fans dialing Boston often forget the area code for Massachusetts, and wind up with Fire Chief Paul O’Connell. The chief isn’t saying so, but he is not weeping over the Red Sox low league standing. It makes for less false alarms.
