    Rhode Island officials are pondering the future of a city-owned stadium now that the minor league Pawtucket Red Sox have announced they intend to leave for Massachusetts.

    Worcester officials announced Friday that they have made a deal to bring the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox to the city. The Providence Journal reports that Minor League Baseball territory rules likely would prohibit another team from moving into Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium.

    A spokesman for Rhode Island Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor on Monday said Pryor has been meeting with Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien. This year's state budget includes $300,000 for repairs at the 76-year-old stadium.

    Grebien says although many were struggling with the news Friday, the city will "continue to move forward toward an even brighter future."
