The major league sport you've never seen

nother sport played at Gillette Stadium that you can actually afford to go and see? Yup. Boston Cannons lacrosse games feature tailgating and all the extras, too, but with reasonable ticket prices, free parking, and no traffic. The Cannons dance team runs promotions and giveaways, too. There’s also a fan zone where some of the best players in the game will sign your shirts, cards, and lax gear. (Yeah, the team calls itself the Cannons, not the Cannon. And we spell it “Foxboro.”) Herder



Lacrosse is the fastest-growing sport in American high schools and colleges, with youth participation up 138 percent since 2001 and about 560 college teams.
