WORCESTER – The baseball rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees is yesterday’s news.

Thanks to the Worcester Bravehearts, there’s a new homegrown rivalry baking or steaming its way to the forefront, and it’s between two beloved and tasty Worcester institutions – Table Talk Pies and George’s Coney Island Hot Dogs.

John W.S. Creedon Jr., owner of the Worcester Bravehearts, and Dave Peterson, general manager of the baseball team, recently unveiled a promotional campaign in which the Bravehearts will briefly be renamed the Table Talk Pies or the Coney Island Hot Dogs.

“On June 19, which is a Tuesday, the Worcester Bravehearts are not going to exist,” Mr. Peterson said. “There will be no Bravehearts. The team will change their name for one night only. We don’t know yet what our name is going to be. That is up to the community.”
