‘Beat the Press’ Broomball Game at Worcester Common Oval
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
The event, 'Beat the Press 2015,' will be a "grudge match" between Mayor Joe Petty and City Manager Ed Augustus' City Hall team of city councilors and department heads versus representatives from media outlets such as GoLocal Worcester, Telegram and Gazette, Worcester Magazine, Worcester News Tonight, MassLive, Worcester Business Journal, Cumulus Media, and WCRN.
Broomball is like hockey, except it's played in sneakers on ice and participants use a broom stick instead of a hockey stick and a ball instead of a puck.
The event is free of charge and will run from 4 PM to 5 PM.
