McCoy Stadium is a Minor League baseball stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It is currently home to the Pawtucket Red Sox of the International League.HistoryThe project to build the stadium began in 1938 and was championed by then-Pawtucket Mayor Thomas P. McCoy. It was to be built on a swampy piece of land known as Hammond's Pond and, to this day, the stadium sits at the end of Pond Street. On the afternoon of November 3, 1940, Mayor McCoy laid the foundation cornerstone.The stadium was completed in 1942, and in 1946 was officially dedicated and named in honor of Mayor McCoy. McCoy Stadium first began hosting affiliated Minor League Baseball in 1946. The Pawtucket Slaters, a Class B affiliate of the Boston Braves, was the first team to call McCoy Stadium home. The Pawtucket Slaters would play for 4 seasons in the New England League, as Braves affiliates.Professional baseball disappeared from Pawtucket for 16 years. It finally returned in 1966 as a member of the Eastern League. McCoy Stadium still hadn't found its true team yet and hosted the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, the Pawtucket Indians. After 2 years, the Indians moved to Waterbury, Connecticut. McCoy was again without a team.In 1969 the Boston Red Sox came to scout McCoy Stadium. By April 1970, the Sox had pulled their minor league affiliate out of their home in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. They moved into McCoy Stadium, where they remain today, and became known as the Pawtucket Red Sox. The franchise would spend three years playing for the Double-A Eastern League before being promoted to the Triple-A International League.

  • McCoy stadium is in my hometown, so we go quite frequently with our two daughters. They are the minor league for the Boston Red Sox`s. It's a great way to spend time with your family. 
  • Great stadium! Such a fun area for a great baseball game. Plus you never know who you will see on the field!
  • All good! Triple A Red Sox affiliate team offers good baseball in a comfortable stadium. The price of admission is right and parking is free, but it's good to get there early because these games are well attended and the parking lot fills up. McCoy stadium is the site of the longest professional baseball game ever -- 33 innings!
  • If you want to see a ball game without breaking the bank, this is the p[alce to go. Good food, great atmosphere, great for families.
  • Excellent ball park. It's cheap and gets you close to the action. For a guy who doesn't watch lots of baseball, the game isn't much different to watch, but the experience is WAY better for you dollar than at pro games
  • Nice well maintained stadium for the Pawtucket red sox. Stadium is small with a job certainly picnic area in right field and plenty of parking.
