Funeral services scheduled for PawSox president Skeffington

Funeral services have been scheduled for James Skeffington, the principal owner of the Pawtucket Red Sox, who died Sunday evening.

A spokeswoman for the PawSox said Tuesday that Skeffington's wake will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence. The funeral mass is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at the same cathedral.

Skeffington suffered a heart attack while jogging near his home in Barrington. Skeffington was a Providence native. He was 73.

His death has led to questions about the next step for the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Skeffington was the team's public face and lead advocate for a plan to move the team to a new stadium in downtown Providence.
