Finally, a number! As state, city and Pawtucket Red Sox ownership continue their closed doors conversations on a potential new stadium, Governor Gina Raimondo tells the Providence Journal she's setting a $35 million dollar ceiling on the state's contribution. Consulants estimate it'll take $35 and a half million alone to solve structural problems at the 75 year old McCoy stadium and $68 million to renovate the ballpark to make it comparable to other Triple A stadiums nationwide. A recent study says the downtown APEX sight is the best spot for a new stadium with grandiose plans including a hotel and apartment buildings shooting the total cost into the stratosphere. Raimondo says her Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor has been working with the team and city in negotiations and he's been told the buck stops at $35 million. When informed of that number, The Journal says Pawsox Chairman Larry Lucchino's only comment was "interesting." Raimondo expects a finalized proposal to be presented to her this week then on to the General Assembly. Finally, we have ONE number.
