PawSox Seek Suggestions for New Team Name

The Pawtucket Red Sox, the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, are asking fans to come up with a new team name as the club gets ready to move from Pawtucket, Rhode Island to Worcester, Massachusetts.

The team announced in August they were building a new ballpark and a multi-million-dollar redevelopment project in Worcester's Canal District. The team will begin playing at the new Polar Park in 2021.

According to a news release from club President Charles Steinberg, not all fans want the team name to be 'WooSox'.

"We have heard from those who would like to call the team the WooSox, and we have heard impassioned pleas from others to not call them the WooSox," Steinberg said in a statement obtained by WJAR-TV.

Fans can submit their name ideas on the MILB website until Nov. 26.
