“Baseball Family Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is baseball as it should be. The prices of everything are reasonable. Can you believe $2 parking in New England? The food is real baseball food and well prepared. The people at the concessions actually act like they are happy to have you in the park. They even let you buy more than 2 beers at one time.

We went on the 2nd and the post game fireworks were the perfect cap to a wonderful day where you could afford to buy the things you wanted at a fair price. The smiles that the trip put on the faces of our grandkids were beautiful.

if you go to an afternoon or early evening game sit on the 3rd base side because the sun is directly facing home and first and it can be brutal. With these prices you get a first class experience for coach prices.

it is not Fenway:
the seats actually are big enough for an adult
the prices are fair
the players really do enjoy their work
parking is almost free
the crowd is really happy to be there
lots of balls end up in the hands of fans
no green monster, left field is full size
it is not crowded
souvenirs are relatively cheap

If you want a true basball experience with quality baseball to watch where you can get close to the players this is the place for you.

“Paw Sox”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Actually I was here many years ago. Of course I would much rather go to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox play. But sometimes that is very hard to do. It is good to take kids to they will have fun.

“Finally a baseball park you can take your family to and not break the bank...some poles do block your view though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Where else can you pay $8-$10 a ticket to see the future MLB stars of tomorrow. About half of the MLB teams have AAA affiliates in the league the Paw Sox play in and if you do your homework by looking at scouting rankings, you can see some real stud players. The sight lines at this stadium are good, but be prepared to have a view of a pole depending where you sit in the general admission section. Overall, you can't beat the value though and this is a must visit if you're a true baseball fan.

“Great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

family friendly and cost effective for a family of 6. Parking was easy and it was a way to spend an evening with my grand children.

“Nice, local fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We love going to the Pawsox. It is closer, easier, and way cheaper than the Red Sox, and you still get to see some great baseball. The tickets are reasonable for families, and so is the food. The cheese fries are SO bad for you...yet oh so good! They have a decent variety of food, but their healthy options (turkey burger) could taste much better.

Certain nights (tonight included) they have pretty incredible fireworks set to the oldies! If you are in Providence/ Pawtucket during baseball season, go by for a game. You might just see the next big player!
