McCoy Stadium – Pawtucket, Rhode Island

General Impression: Now here is a ballpark we could call home. Not new, not flashy, but enough character to make this an enjoyable place to watch a game. Famous for its dugouts under the seating area where kids lower items to be autographed down on strings, the PawSox are well supported in this part of the world and I’d be willing to bet McCoy in some way has something to do with this. Entry is through the left field corner, up a set of stairs to the main (and only) concourse – which takes you right by the rather sizable team store. All seating areas are accessible from this point via tunnels and a main concourse that splits the green seats from the red and blue.

Food and Libations: The usual ballpark stuff, with a couple of beer stands independent of the main concessions. I hit up the one just as you make your way past the top of the main staircase for a few Narragansett drafts – good stuff!

Parking: Lots surround the stadium, and if you arrive there early enough its free! I saw a post on the PawSox site that said if you park at the school nearby there is a charge, but the potential exists they only use this lot when the ‘free’ ones fill up.

Programs/Scorecards: $3.00

Complaints/Gripes: Yeah, I got none. I like this place, I really do. Jill had been here for a couple of games in ’10 and had the same thing to say about it.
