Pawtucket Red Sox TicketsThe Pawtucket Red Sox, frequently called the PawSox, are the top-level minor league affiliates for the Boston Red Sox. Located less than 50 miles away from Fenway Park, McCoy Stadium is where the next generation of Red Sox prospects hone their skills and fight for a spot on the Major League roster. Fans attending a Pawtucket Red Sox game can expect to see top-notch baseball and a Major League atmosphere. The local enthusiasm for the Red Sox is on full display here as Pawtucket regularly sees much larger crowds than the average minor league baseball games. Much to the dismay of some local fans, the 2020 season will be the final season that the PawSox call Pawtucket and McCoy Stadium their home, moving across the border to Worchester, Mass., after the season. You should not miss your chance to see a game at historic McCoy Stadium during the final season of PawSox baseball in Rhode Island. Save on your Pawtucket Red Sox tickets by buying them at StubHub.

What are some records set by the Pawtucket Red Sox?In the 50-year history of PawSox baseball, there have been lots of memorable games. No other game, however, would be quite like the one between the Rochester Red Wings and the Pawtucket Red Sox on April 18th, 1981. Lasting eight hours over two days, the two teams played for a staggering 33 innings before a Pawtucket run in the bottom of the inning finally gave them a 3-2 victory. Several other records were set throughout this historic game, widely considered the longest baseball game in history. Hall of Fame baseball player Cal Ripken Jr played third base for the Rochester Red Wings at the time. At one point, Rochester’s coach reminded him to watch for a bunt, to which Ripken replied, "I've been watching for the bunt for 23 innings now."
