McCoy Stadium is a Minor League baseball stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It is currently home to the Pawtucket Red Sox (Paw Sox) of the International League and affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. The stadium was completed in 1946 as the home for the Pawtucket Slaters, an affiliate of the Boston Braves. Since 1969, the stadium has hosted the Pawtucket Red Sox. In 1981, the stadium hosted the longest professional baseball game in history, where the Paw Sox defeated the Rochester Red Wings after 33 innings by a score of 3-2.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.

  • This stadium has no bad seat!. Everywhere we have sat we have had great views.. great place to bring kids to introduce them to what the American pastime is. Cheap tickets and food is decent. The restrooms are clean and are plentiful. Never have had to wait long for using the bathroom (especially with a young one is helpful). The crowd is always excited but nothing over the line. Never have to worry about "bad language" around kids. Great night outing with family!
  • There is nothing better than a minor league stadium in the summer. This was no exception. The atmosphere is made even more enjoyable by the local crowd. Parking, food and tickets are priced reasonably enough to make catching a game much less of a financial strain than going to a major league game, or most anything else these days.
  • I love it here . From fireworks displays to fan appreciation nights always something to do here . Hopefully the team does not leave the state
  • 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.)
  • I go to the track to walk during the summer, it's very helpful to those of us who need to exercise.
