Rename McCoy Stadium

06Oct10

Let’s start the charge now.  Let’s get McCoy Stadium renamed to McCoy-Mondor Stadium.  No disrespect to Mayor McCoy who helped get the stadium built in 1938, but I don’t think anyone has done more for that stadium or the PawSox than Ben Mondor did.   Seriously, would anyone really oppose this?

  1. I totally agree! What a great man he was, and he will be sorely missed. I can’t think of McCoy Stadium or the Pawsox without thinking of him.

    You asked, “Seriously, would anyone really oppose this?

    Ben Mondor would, and did a few years ago when this was brought up. But, now that he’s gone, I think it would be a great tribute to this true legend of AAA baseball and Rhode Island. He raised ticket prices TWICE in 31 years!

    RIP Ben Mondor.
