PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo says she will meet with the mayor of Pawtucket to talk about how to keep the Pawtucket Red Sox in Rhode Island.

WPRO-AM (https://bit.ly/1KoYj6q ) reports that Raimondo says the PawSox are an institution in Rhode Island and “we have to try as hard as we can” to make sure they stay.

It was reported in The Boston Globe in November that members of the Boston Red Sox ownership group were negotiating to purchase the PawSox, the Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.

Officials at both organizations have not commented.

Raimondo says Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien reached out to her.

The PawSox have played in McCoy Stadium for more than four decades.

The team won the 2014 International League championship.
