Sox set for holiday trophy tour

It may not be baseball season, but the Red Sox are still out and about, and proudly showing off their 2013 World Series trophy (2004 and 2007 hardware, too).

And in the spirit of the holiday season, they're reaching out to fans and businesses.

Besides a Holiday Trophy Caravan on Wednesday through Friday that will visit area schools and hospitals, the Sox are holding a "Holiday Pop Up Party" contest. Businesses are invited to tweet @red sox using the hashtag #WeWantTheTrophies explaining why their office should be visited by the Red Sox caravan (which they're calling -- what else? -- the "One Duck Open Sleigh").

On Thursday, the three winning businesses will get a "Red Sox Pop Up Holiday Party," which will include an office-wide photo with the World Series trophies, a visit from Wally the Green Monster, team merchandise and 20 free tickets to a 2014 Red Sox game.

The Holiday Trophy Caravan leads up to Christmas at Fenway on Saturday, which is the first chance to purchase Red Sox tickets for the 2014 regular season.
