At the Old Ball Game

Posted on

Another hot RI spot I get to cross off my list: McCoy Stadium, Pawtucket.

 Bits of Info about this outing:

  • McCoy Stadium is home to the minor league baseball Triple-A affiliates of the Boston Red Sox – The Pawtucket Red Sox or PawSox.
  • I am anything but a baseball fanatic; actually, I don’t have a clue about baseball.  But I am a Boston Red Sox fan.  What can I say? I live in Red Sox Nation.
  • The longest game in the history of baseball was played at McCoy.
  • Obviously, McCoy Stadium is the spot to visit in the city of Pawtucket, thus I had to put it on my list in spite of my slight taste for baseball.
  • I made it a family outing with my kids and two younger nephews.  My nephews play baseball, and the youngest one, Alex, was all into the game.
  • We had baseball game type snacks (hot dogs, doughboys and such)
  • We got to meet, and take pictures with, Paws, the male PawsSox Mascot.  We did not spot the female mascot; her name is Sox, of course.
