PawSox officially cancel their last season at McCoy Stadium due to COVID-19
PAWTUCKET, RI (WLNE) – The Pawsox confirmed Tuesday that the COVID-19 pandemic has canceled their last season at the 78-year-old McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket.
“Naturally, as baseball fans, we are deeply disappointed to not have a summer of Pawsox Baseball, especially in our 50th anniversary season,” said club president Dr. Charles Steinberg. “Yet all of us recognize that the health, safety, and well-being of our players, fans, and entire community are paramount. But we will keep the faith, this may not be how the story ends.”
Fans with tickets to 2020 Pawsox home games will be contacted by the club’s ticket office and receive personal attention regarding a variety of options, including refunds, according to a spokesperson.
The Pawsox said that they will explore ways to have a “fitting farewell” to McCoy Stadium as the club hopes to open the 2021 season in Worcester.
The Boston Redsox have discussed using McCoy Stadium as the home of some of their workouts in 2020. Schedules and details will be announced.
The Pawsox said their Dining on the Diamond initiative will continue if possible.
