Baseball history was made 18-Apr-1981 at McCoy Stadium. That night, the Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings played until after 4 in the morning without determining a winner. The game wound up going 33 innings, a professional record.

The venerable old park received a face lift prior to the 1999 season; the stadium was completely redone, and even the field moved a few feet to allow for 2,998 extra seats. I got back to it in 2000, and as you can see, itís greatly improved. In any case, itís still the real McCoy.
