PawSox brass meet with Worcester city officials

Worcester is stepping up its efforts to lure the Pawtucket Red Sox to the city.

PawSox brass including chairman Larry Lucchino and vice chairman Mike Tamburro - a Worcester native - met with by City Manager Ed Augustus, Mayor Joe Petty and other officials last week to discuss a possible move.

The visit included a tour of the Canal District neighborhood adjacent to a vacant property, the site often mentioned as a possible location for a ballpark.

The Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate's lease at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket runs out in 2020 and the team wants a new ballpark.

Rhode Island officials have said they want to keep the team, but have not been able to reach a financing deal for a new stadium.
