(Worcester, MA) -- A hearing was held in Worcester on Tuesday to allow the public to comment on a new stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox. As part of the deal reached for the team to move into the new ballpark in 2021, at least two such meetings must be held before the Worcester City Council can approve the financing. Members of a local labor coalition urged the city to adopt a community benefit agreement and enforce a strong tax-increment financing policy on Tuesday. An economics professor at the College of the Holy Cross was among several people who expressed concern about the finances, especially on the back end of the 30-year deal.
