McCoy Stadium, home of the Pawtucket Red Sox, is a great place to go see a game. They have cheap tickets only $11 and parking is free. Furthermore, it’s also home of baseball’s longest game (33 innings) in 1980. McCoy Stadium had some renovations done in 1992 and in 1999. In addition, it’s also home of the 2004 Triple A All-Star Game. Ben Mondor was the owner and after he died a few years ago his wife took over the team.
What Will They Do with McCoy?
In 2017 it was found that renovations for the ballpark would cost about $68 million dollars. The stadium structure is 75 years old. Demolishing the old one and building a new one would cost $75 million. The team’s goal, according to the Boston Globe, is getting an $83 million dollar ballpark closer to Pawtucket. The team will seek $15 million from Pawtucket to cover land costs.
My Grandfather Loved Working There
My grandfather worked there for ten years, from 1990-2000 as the clubhouse security guard. Going to McCoy was always fun seeing the players from Boston down in Pawtucket for rehab. Or Just waiting to get called up. It would always be a great tradition in the summer going to the games. Sitting in Section 7, right behind home plate, having a doughboy in the fourth inning. Finally after going into the clubhouse and as a result seeing players. Trot Nixon, Nomar Garciaparra, Mo Vaughn and so on it was always fun.
