    The Pawtucket Red Sox, the city and the state are seeking to study what it would take to upgrade McCoy Stadium.

    The Providence Journal reports officials announced Monday the study will cost between $80,000 and $100,000. The team, city and state will split the cost.

    It will take into consideration a study the team's ownership group had done last year that determined the stadium needs up to $65 million in renovations. The team has declined to release the study.

    Team chairman Larry Lucchino declined to say whether the team intends to renovate McCoy. He says the team will stay until its lease ends in January 2021.

    The team in September ended its pursuit of waterfront land near downtown Providence for a new ballpark after months of strenuous public opposition.
