1 Columbus Avenue
Pawtucket, Rhode Island
Join fellow URI alumni and friends for an evening of minor league baseball, Rhody and an all-you-can eat BBQ! The URI Alumni Association is taking over right field with Rhody the Ram, Paws and Sox (the PawSox mascots).
Enjoy a savory barbecue in our exclusive tent area, sit for a caricature drawing, enter our free raffle for a chance to win great URI gear, and then watch the hometown PawSox take on the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs beginning at 7:05 p.m. Plus, it’s PawSox baseball card night at the stadium, where the first 5,000 fans will receive a baseball card set.
Prior to the gates opening, registrants are also invited to attend an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of McCoy Stadium at 4:30 p.m., given by Augusto “Cookie” Rojas '93 of the PawSox front office.
The BBQ tent area opens at 5:00 p.m. and the PawSox vs. the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs game begins at 7:05 p.m. The BBQ will close promptly at the start of the game, so be sure to get there early! Please allow for ample travel time to McCoy Stadium, parking is limited in the stadium lot and the roads around McCoy can get very congested.
The menu consists of ball-park fare, all-you-can-eat grilled chicken breasts, 1/4 lb. hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, potato chips, lemonade, and an ice cream bar. A vegetarian option is available upon request prior to the game. Please contact Chris DiSano at 401-874-4536 for this or any other dietary request.
Deadline to register for this event is August 13, 2014. There will be no refunds or cancellations after this date.
