Kids eat free at McCoy

By MLB.com | March 31, 2009 10:13 AM

The Pawtucket Red Sox are pleased to announce a Kids Eat Free* at McCoy Stadium initiative that will provide youngsters (aged 12 & under) attending a PawSox game at McCoy with a concession coupon good for a free hot dog, Pepsi, and bag of chips. Youngsters, who must be holding a purchased box seat ticket, must enter the ballpark through the main gate to receive their concession coupon at a specially-designated table inside McCoy Stadium. The offer will be good during all PawSox home games from the beginning of this season through the first two homestands (excluding Opening Night on April 17).

The PawSox also announced that seasonal prices for McCoy Stadium favorites such as hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, French fries, fried dough, popcorn, ice cream, and all soft drinks will once again remain the same in 2009. The prices for these items are already among the lowest in the industry as hot dogs are just $2.75, hamburgers are $3.50, French fries are $3.00, popcorn is $2.50, ice cream is $2.00, and soft drinks are $2.00.

"The PawSox have always done our best to provide quality family entertainment at the lowest possible price and we believe this is another indication of that," said PawSox president Mike Tamburro. "We are especially pleased, in light of these difficult economic times, to enable kids to eat for free. It is our way of saying thanks to the people who make PawSox Baseball what it is.

"Furthermore, we take great pride in holding the line on, not only ticket prices, but our most popular concession items as well. Our pledge has always been to insure McCoy Stadium is the most reasonably priced entertainment venue in New England."

The PawSox will open their 2009 season on April 9 in Buffalo with the home-opener at McCoy Stadium slated for Friday, April 17 at 7:05 pm vs. the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Tickets for Opening Night and all PawSox home games are currently on sale at the McCoy Box Office, on-line at www.pawsox.com, or by calling (401) 724-7300.

* To be eligible for Kids Eat Free at McCoy you must be 12 years-old or younger and be holding a purchased box seat ticket. You must check-in at the Kids Eat Free table inside the main gate at McCoy Stadium upon arrival. Offer is good for games at McCoy between April 18 - May 7, 2009.
