 Anticipation...
As the last of the snow melts (at least down here in Pawtucket), and Opening Day a mere few weeks away, a very welcome sight greeted me today.

Behold--

The raising of a Pawsox Championship Banner.

I'm about 90 miles north of you and we still have about 6 inches of snow to go. I've been to many minor league stadiums but have never been to Providence. Perhaps this will be the year. We recently spent a week in Fort Myers and caught 2 games at the new Jet Blue Park aka Fenway South. On a side note, if you're under 60 and not a baseball fan then Ft Myers can be quite boring.

It's just the opposite for me; McCoy Stadium is the only minor league baseball stadium I've ever been to. I like McCoy alot and it has a nice homey feel to it. Of course, I have nothing to compare it with-- so you may feel different if you ever visit.

 Re: Anticipation...
I thought I'd add if you do come down to a game, there are a few things I can point out:

1. Parking. There is plenty of parking at the stadium and outlying area. The are also many side streets to park on, so you shouldn't need to pay for parking. HOWEVER, if you're coming to a special event game (ie: Fireworks, giveaways) be sure to arrive early since these games draw way more people than normal.

2. Seats. Generally, there are no bad seats but there are a few exceptions. The blue general admission seats way up in back under the stadium roof cannot see fly balls or some of the outfield action, so try to get the better seats since they're first come, first served. Blue seats cost $8 for adults. The Red and Green box seats are reserved and cost $12 for adults. If you go to an evening game and sit on the first base side, expect the setting sun to smack you in the face for the first four innings until it sets. I always sit on the third base side.

3. Mascots. There are two mascots at McCoy ("Paws" and his wife/girlfriend/sister/? "Sox"). They both come onto the field later between innings with these air guns and shoot prizes into the stands, so if you have young kids you bring along, that might be something to look out for. Also after the game, you can have your kids picture taken with them. Paws has this little alcove right next to the tower for that.
