The City of Worcester has announced a press conference at 2:00pm today, reportedly to announce the relocation of the Boston Red Sox minor league team from Pawtucket RI to Worcester in 2021.
Members of the Canal District Alliance in South Worcester had been lobbying Paw Sox team management to relocate to the city, sending 10,000 postcards signed by residents to the Red Sox and the governor to demonstrate how serious the city is about welcoming the team.
The plan is to build a stadium at the vacant Wyman-Gordon site, possibly designed by Janet Marie Smith who was behind the development of Camden Yards in Baltimore and the renovation of Fenway Park.
If the Paw Sox are to become the Woo Sox, I think the choice of the new manager is clear. Ric Flair would put the "Woo" in Woo Sox, and the crowd would go wild when he knocks the plate umpire unconscious with a folding chair over a called third strike.
