Special Order—Subject to Availability
Before players like Carlton Fisk, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, Mo Vaughn, and Nomar Garciaparra starred at Fenway Park, they were Pawtucket Red Sox. Over the past thirty years, the PawSox have evolved into one of the most successful franchises in all of minor-league baseball. Millions of fans have packed McCoy Stadium to watch everyone from superstars like Fisk, Boggs, and Clemens to career minor-leaguers like Chico Walker and Pork Chop Pough.

The Pawtucket Red Sox examines the history of the PawSox from their origin as a Double-A affiliate of Boston to their ascension to Triple-A status in 1973, right on through the ownership years of Ben Mondor. More than two hundred photographs chronicle the players, managers, and other key figures behind the franchise's success, as well as the defining moments in PawSox history: the 1977 International League championship, the longest game in professional baseball history, the unveiling of the new McCoy Stadium in 1999, and many others.
