McCoy Stadium, Pawtucket

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.

  • Great place to take take the family out. Reasonably priced, Triple AAA minor baseball. There are firworks to celebrate life, many times during the baseball season. Enjoy a beer, watch a game,have something to eat. (Prices of food and drink are bit over-priced.)
  • Great place for some family fun. Very entertaining games and between shows. And sometimes they have a great display of fireworks. Watch for family special days.
  • place to bring the family for cheap money you can actually go there for a family of four and not spend a lot of money it'll be a disappointment if they do move it
  • A nice place to casually watch a game of baseball and still get the big game experience of fenway.
  • PAWSOX Baseball. I hope Rhode Island doesn't let them move. Good family entertainment & affordable.
