McCoy Stadium – Pawtucket RI

Description

One of Rhode Island’s largest sports venues, McCoy Stadium was built between 1938 and 1940 by the City of Pawtucket. It was co-designed by Thomas E. Harding, the city engineer, and Mark Linenthal, associate engineer. Home to the Pawtucket Red Sox, it is named for Tom McCoy, mayor of Pawtucket at the time of the stadium’s construction. Renovated in 1999. The stadium is currently home of the Pawtucket PawSox.

“Presidents Roosevelt and Truman both visited during the 1940s to see the product of the federal building they’d funded.”   (Pahigian)
