Worcester to break ground for new minor league baseball stadium

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A ceremony was held in Worcester as the city officially broke ground on a new minor league stadium.

Polar Park will be the new home of the Boston Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate, beginning in 2021.

The club announced last year that it's moving from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, to Worcester after failing to reach a deal for a new stadium with Rhode Island officials.

Politicians, team executives and community leaders attended the ceremonial groundbreaking Thursday afternoon for the $100 million stadium that city leaders are hoping will spur additional downtown development.

Meanwhile, the Rhode Island Commerce Corp. is looking for potential new tenants for McCoy Stadium, the current home of the PawSox.
