To the Editor:
I have been an avid PawSox fan for most of my life. It would be a shame if they moved out of state. I don’t think our legislators are doing enough in advocating to keep the PawSox in Rhode Island. Shame on Mattiello, shame on Governor Raimondo, and shame on Pawtucket Mayor for not trying hard enough.
They want to spend all this money on a new stadium. Why not put that money into renovating McCoy Stadium? There is a lot of history at McCoy. A lot of great ball players came out of there.
I’m all in favor of creating jobs and revenue for the state. The old stadium certainly could use a lot of improvements. Put the money toward that. Our local and state legislators cannot decide on their own what to do with McCoy Stadium. Let the people decide to put it on a ballot so the state of Rhode Island can have a say in the future of McCoy Stadium.
