Private company suggests alternative location for ballpark

The owners of a parcel of downtown Providence land are pitching the location as a suitable alternative for the Pawtucket Red Sox's new ballpark.

JAG Investment Realty suggested Tuesday that Victory Place near Davol Square would be an option should the PawSox owners' first pick fall through. Company spokesman Bill Fischer says it would be ideal because of its proximity to the highway and parking.

Fischer says JAG asked an international architectural firm to create renderings of a 10,000-seat stadium on the land.

Team spokeswoman Patti Doyle says the owners of the Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate are only interested in the former highway land along the Providence River currently owned by the state.

The owners announced Saturday they'd be willing to purchase the land rather than leasing it.
