Summertime in New England means sunshine, baseball, and good times. We decided to combine all of these things into an awesome summer field trip that led us straight to McCoy Stadium to see the Pawtucket Red Sox play. Our host, Nick, took us through the history of the stadium and the team during a private tour before the game began. We saw many familiar faces and relics on their long wall of fame and heard some interesting stories. Nick told us about “The Longest Game” when 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. Major League Baseball Hall of Famers Cal Ripken, Jr. and Wade Boggs played in the game.

The MTD crew enjoyed a catered pregame terrace party, which came with the best view in the stadium. We dined on burgers, hotdogs, salads, icecream, and washed it all down with some cold brews. At MTD, we love working together and getting out of the office to play together too! A great time had by all and another successful field trip for the MTD books!
