PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Boston Red Sox President Larry Lucchino has acknowledged that creating a new stadium proposal for the Pawtucket Red Sox will require more time.

Lucchino, a PawSox co-owner, sent a letter Tuesday to state lawmakers saying a proposal would not be ready before the end of the legislative session. He says the extra time will allow the ownership group to better inform the public on a proposal.

Lucchino says the recent death of PawSox President Jim Skeffington has affected the time it would take to create a proposal.

House speaker spokesman Larry Berman said Tuesday that the proposal might require a special session in the fall.

The team’s owners and lawmakers have been working on a deal after the team’s original proposal, asking for $120 million in state subsidies, was rejected.
