In 1986, a group led by Joseph Mulzino purchased and moved an Eastern League team known as the Vermont Yankees to Pawtucket, Rhode Island; however, due to stadium renovations not being completed on time, Pawtucket was unable to host any home games that season.

The temporary relocation proved to be a success, as passionate fan support led Mulzino to keep his team—renamed the Pawtucket Red Sox—in Scranton for 1987 while waiting for renovations on McCoy Stadium to be completed. Following that season (and despite a number of attempts by others over the years), Mulzino finally succeeded in moving his franchise permanently to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; moreover, he brought professional baseball back to Lackawanna County Stadium after a 23-year absence.
