Red Claws return to Midcoast July 31
Thomaston — The Maine Red Claws have tipped off their third annual summer clinic series, which is again set to rock the Midcoast.
The series brings Maine Red Claws players and executives from town to town in search of youngsters looking to expand their games in a series of drills during a 90-minute session.
The Red Claws will will invade the Thomaston Dunkin' Donuts on Route 1 on Tuesday, July 31 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
The month-long series, sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts, will bring the team's caravan to 13 areas from Presque Isle to Conway, N.H. and stops along the way. The series began July 9 in Gorham and will conclude Aug. 2 in Lisbon Falls.
“This is wonderful collaboration with the local Dunkin’ Donuts business owners to bring professional basketball to kids across the state, and a great opportunity for us to visit fans across Maine, many of whom may have only had the opportunity to see the team play on television,” said Dajuan Eubanks, Red Claws vice president of corporate partnerships. “This is the third season we have held the Maine Red Claws Summer Clinic Series, sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, and we are looking forward to another great summer traveling throughout the state and meeting Red Claws fans.”
The Red Claws are in their fourth season and are the minor league affiliate of the National Basketball Association's Boston Celtics. The series visited the Thomaston Dunkin' Donuts two years ago and came to the Rockland Dunkin' Donuts last year.
