The Pawtucket Red Sox were supposed to play one final season in 2020 before making the move to Worcester. The Rhode Islan-based Triple-A team has been in Pawtucket since 1970, and has been associated with the Boston Red Sox for just as long.

Unfortunately, the final season likely won't be played in a way that does justice to that history However, the team has found a fun and unique way to still get fans to McCoy Stadium for an event even without games being played.

The PawSox are setting up picnic tables on their field now that outdoor dining is allowed again in Rhode Island. Fans can also place orders for pickup. The menu includes traditional ballpark items including hot dogs, nachos, ice cream, and also some more traditional meals.

Not having games played is upsetting, but it is nice to see the organization do something to get fans involved before the team moves to Massachusetts. PawSox fans craving a part of that ballpark experience are now in luck. Hopefully, other teams around the country follow their lead as soon as it's safe.
