(Worcester, MA)  --  The Worcester City Council reviewed the financing package for a new baseball stadium intended to host the Pawtucket Red Sox on Tuesday.  That city plans to borrow 100-million dollars in bonds and have the team contribute 30-million toward the new ballpark, which would open in 2021.  Council members pledged due diligence regarding the fiscal responsibility of the city and said they would not serve as a rubber stamp, with some noting there are members of the community that do not believe the deal is a good one for the city.  Mayor Joseph Petty, who supports the new stadium, has said he hopes the council will take a final vote before the end of next month.
