Reaching Out to Those in Brockton
"œWhen Brockton is home, everything is within reach." This slogan dons the front page of the city's website and this town in Massachusetts but it's official slogan is, "œThe city of champions." The city has this claim to fame because Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler, famous boxers, called this place home. In 2012 a twenty-foot-tall statue to Marciano was unveiled by the city in conjunction with the World Boxing Council to commemorate the only undefeated heavyweight boxer in history. In such a city of Champions, you would think they would compete with Boston to be the home of the professional teams based on their history.
