Opponents of building a new Pawsox stadium in Providence are rallying Thursday at the Statehouse. They want the team to stay in Pawtucket.
Organizing for Pawtucket Founder David Norton organized the rally.
“We want to make it crystal clear to our elected leaders that a very strong majority of Rhode Islanders oppose building a new stadium in Providence,” said Norton. “They’re in opposition to it.”
Some Providence residents have also openly opposed the idea. Norton says moving the team to Providence would be bad for business.
