“The Longest Game”

The PawSox played in and won the longest game in professional baseball history, a 33-inning affair against the Rochester Red Wings at McCoy Stadium. The game started on April 18, 1981. Play was suspended at 4:07 a.m. at the end of the 32nd inning. The game did not resume again until June 23 when the Red Wings returned to Pawtucket. Only one inning was needed, with the PawSox winning 3–2 in the bottom of the 33rd when first baseman Dave Koza drove in second baseman Marty Barrett with a bases-loaded single off Cliff Speck. Major League Baseball Hall of Famers Cal Ripken, Jr. and Wade Boggs played in the game.


 

A Snapshot In Time 

Perfect games

Tomo Ohka pitched a nine-inning perfect game for the Pawtucket Red Sox on June 1, 2000. Ohka retired all 27 batters he faced in a 2–0 win over the Charlotte Knights, and he needed just 76 pitches to toss the first nine-inning perfect game in the International League since 1952.

On August 10, 2003, Bronson Arroyo pitched the fourth nine-inning perfect game in the 121-year history of the International League as the PawSox beat the Buffalo Bisons 7–0 at McCoy Stadium. He needed 101 pitches to throw his masterpiece (73 strikes), struck out nine, and got 10 fly outs and eight ground outs from the Buffalo 27 batters. He went to a three-ball count to just three hitters all game. At the end of the month, he was promoted to the majors, and remained with the Red Sox until the 2005-06 offseason, when the Red Sox traded him to the Cincinnati Reds for Wily Mo Pena.



Hall of Fame

Several PawSox players and personnel have been inducted into the International League Hall of Fame. They are owner Ben Mondor, manager Joe Morgan, outfielder Jim Rice, third baseman Wade Boggs, and team president Mike Tamburro. Several former PawSox players have also been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, including Carlton Fisk, Wade Boggs, and Jim Rice.

National_Tennis_ClubThe National Tennis Club (NTC) was formed in 1980 when the original court tennis court, which was destroyed by a series of arsenic fires in 1945 and 1946, was completely rebuilt. The only thing that remains original is the floor and some of the lower walls, dating back to 1880.

Its home is the reconstructed Court Tennis Building at the Newport Casino within the grounds of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

The official opening was observed in August, 1980, following ceremonies at the conclusion of the first world doubles tournament for the Tiffany Cup, presented by Tiffany & Co.

The club has an active membership of approximately 100 players. It is also one of the busiest court tennis courts in the United States and has a creative play program for all levels, including club handicaps, inter-city play, night leagues, and national and international tournaments.
