Economist Says State Loses On Ballpark

A sports economist says the deal proposed by the Pawtucket Red Sox to move the team to Providence would be bad for taxpayers.  College of the Holy Cross economist Victor Matheson appeared yesterday in Pawtucket to talk about the stadium issue.  Matheson says the expensive stadium is not likely to generate enough economic activity to justify the huge investment.  The new PawSox owners are seeking an incentive package of more than 100-million dollars to relocate the team to Providence.
