A Kansas City, Missouri-based architecture firm has been tapped to study possible upgrades to McCoy Stadium, the home of the Pawtucket Red Sox.
PawSox Chairman Larry Lucchino, Democratic Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien and state Department of Administration Director Michael DiBiase said Monday they've chosen Pendulum Studio LLC.
The team, the city and the state will split the $105,000 cost of the study, plus expenses including travel costs for the firm to visit Pawtucket. Officials had previously estimated the study would cost between $80,000 and $100,000.
The study will assess whether the 74-year-old ballpark is a suitable home for the Triple A baseball team.
Pendulum is expected to complete its work no later than January 2017.
The team last year ended its pursuit of land in Providence for a new ballpark.
