PawSox unveil Mondor Gardens

June 29, 2011

PawSox President Mike Tamburro talks to media while introducing Mondor Gardens, a final tribute to the late team owner and former Woonsocket mill owner, Ben Mondor.

PAWTUCKET -- The Pawtucket Red Sox proudly unveiled the latest addition to McCoy Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, as Mondor Gardens was open to the public behind the left-field fence near the McCoy Stadium ticket office.
The handicap-accessible area, which is a tribute to late PawSox owner Ben Mondor, who passed away last October, is landscaped with paved walkways, granite steps, six park benches, and a collection of trees, plants, and flowers.
The area also contains six miniature bronze statues of young children playing baseball that Mondor purchased two years ago in Florida.
“Ben would have loved this park-like setting,” added PawSox president Mike Tamburro as he looked over the scenic display, which will provide a place for fans to relax before and after a game.
