McCoy has quite the history - it started as a WPA project in the late 30's and was finally finished in 1946. Classic Rhode Island it wound up costing more to build than Yankee Stadium 20 years earlier.

Longest game in baseball history (33 innings) was played there in 1981.

Only 38 miles from Fenway (and 12 from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough) the franchise is now a major part of the fabric of Rhode Island and SE Mass.

All home games are televised on COX cable statewide in RI using the scoreboard cameras and WHJJ audio.

A sample

Pawsox radio puts many MLB teams to shame and every play by play announcer in the past 20 years is now working for either a MLB or NFL team.

Just a very well run operation
