No Gatorade shower for winners!

One of the traditions for winning football teams is to douse the coach with the handy bucket of Gatorade.

Don't look for this to happen in Franklin, at least not on the artificial surface at the FHS' Pisini Field. The sign posted below reads:

The operative words:
This facility is for the use of town residents. to protect this field the following are prohibited: 
  • sports drinks, soda, alcohol, coffee, or any other beverage other than water.

Oh, and while the pressbox advertises the field name as Pisini Field, why does this sign only say "Franklin High School Oak Street Field"?

Franklin, MA

  1. Maybe for the same reason that the field house at the high school no long says "Woodrow L. Abbott Field House". The sign was changed to "Franklin High School" at least 10 years ago. No one seemed to know why when I inquired; school officials claimed nothing had happened. You can, however, still see the holes in the wall where the fasteners of the old sign were located.
