Pawtucket Mayor:PawSox Leaving City

Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien says Pawtucket's Triple A baseball club has been sold and is leaving the city.

The mayor says that he was briefed by the team Sunday. He did not disclose the new owners or where they will move the team.

Grebien said that until Sunday there was hope the team would remain in Pawtucket. However, he said he was presented with a plan that doesn't include Pawtucket.

He said the move is "devastating."

Grebien said the new owners told him it didn't make sense to spend money on the stadium and they are instead looking at establishing a destination stadium.

The team's principal owner is Madelaine Mondor, widow of longtime owner Ben Mondor who owned the team from 1977 until his death in 2010.
