'Little Rhody' On Verge Of Losing AAA Team To Bay State

Time may be running out on the people of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Last minute pleas have been made to the Rhode Island General Assembly to fund a new baseball stadium—the Ballpark At Slater Mill in Pawtucket. Without the new stadium commitment, the AAA franchise of the Red Sox will likely move to Worcester, Massachusetts—a community poised to make a commitment for a stadium (with at least the nominal support of Governor Charlie Baker). Said Pawtucket Mayor Donald R. Grebien, "Rhode Island's leaders must act and approve this proposal in January. Our PawSox are going to end up in Worcester if we do not act. We cannot afford to watch the tax dollars go to another city and another state." Hello, WooSox!
