WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Worcester Red Sox are gearing up for the team's second season by adding new amenities to its home Polar Park.

Some of the new upgrades include a highly requested new video board on the "Worcester Wall" in right field that can be seen from all areas of the park, along with a new seating area above the wall with 34 seats, in honor of Red Sox legend David Ortiz.

But that's not the only new place fans can sit, the WooSox also bought "Beantown Betty", a retired duck boat that was part of the Red Sox World Series parades. It can fit about 10 to 15 fans.

"Fans can actually go in it and sit in it during the game and just hang out," WooSox Senior Vice President of Communications Bill Wanless told WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe.

As for concessions, the WooSox market in the stadium will now allow fans to pay by tapping their phones.

"It's just an incredible technology," Wanless said. "There's no waiting in line, you go in, you grab what you want, tap your phone, and go right back to your seat."
