[edit] Team History

The Pawtucket Red Sox are popularly called the "Paw Sox". In 1976 they were known as the Rhode Island Red Sox

In 1974, future Red Sox star Jim Rice won a Triple Crown for Pawtucket, hitting .337 with 25 homers and 93 runs batted in. Some other great players to play for the Paw Sox have included Dwight Evans, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens and Nomar Garciaparra.

The team went bankrupt after the 1976 season, but was rescued when bought by local businessman Ben Mondor who bought the team in 1977 and ran it until his death in 2010, turning it into one of the most successful franchises in the minor leagues. His widow Madeleine Mondor inherited the team after Ben's death.

On April 17-18 in 1981, McCoy Stadium was home to the longest game in baseball history.

In February of 2015, the team was purchased by a group of investors including Boston Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino who announced plans to move the team to nearby Providence, RI in 2017, into a brand new ballpark built on the shore of the Providence River. However, plans to acquire land near I-185 fell through and at the end of the 2015 season, the future of the team was up in the air, with a number of possible scenarios being considered.
