PawSox owners prepare to move team to Worcester

A vacant lot in Worcester's Canal District could be the site of a new ballpark

WBUR reported Thursday that a tentative deal, subject to approval, had been reached between the team and Worcester officials.

It's a sad day for Rhode Islanders.

Worcester has been trying to lure the Rhode Island team to MA for years. Minor League Baseball also needs to OK the project. Last week Lucchino was spotted touring the city's Canal District, where the new stadium is expected to be built on a parcel of land off Madison Street.

Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien was a major proponent and did almost everything he could to keep the team in the city. To combat continued resistance to using public funds, Grebien insisted the plan would pay for itself over time.

Are the PawSox set to become the WooSox? The stadium opened in 1942, but underwent major renovations in 1998. "We are pleased to continue to invest in the City of Worcester and look forward to working together to welcome a premier professional ball team to the state".

Multiple reports say that the Pawtucket Red Sox will pack it up and move 42 miles north, across state lines from Rhode Island to Worcester, Massachusetts.

"This is something that's been really driven by Larry Lucchino, the CEO of the PawSox", Werner told reporters Friday. It was a ploy by Rhode Island House leadership, one they knew the PawSox would reject. We're kind of bystanders in it. However, Rhode Island politics screwed things up.
