City councilor wants New Bedford to discuss PawSox pitch

The new owners of the Pawtucket Red Sox say they want to move the team to Providence. But officials in New Bedford are interested in becoming the next home of the Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.

City Councilor Steve Martins has filed a motion for the city to discuss becoming the home for the team.

Martins and fellow councilor Kerry Winterson have lined up two potential sites for a new stadium. One is right along the waterfront, similar to the proposed ballpark in Providence.

Martins and Winterson say they are willing to give the PawSox time to work on a deal with Rhode Island officials.

Martins says New Bedford would consider taking an aggressive approach in obtaining the team if a deal falls through.
