Worcester city officials are planning an announcement today related to the Pawtucket Red Sox. Most insiders say it is to announce that if a stadium can be approved in Worcester that the Triple A baseball team will move by 2021 to their community.
The city has been trying to lure the top minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox from Rhode Island for three years.
PawSox chairman Larry Lucchino was in Worcester touring a possible stadium site in the Canal District last week.
However, all involved are being tight lipped about the content of the announcement, which is set for this afternoon.
