PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Attendance at Pawtucket Red Sox games has declined 10 percent this season, the lowest attendance in over 20 years.

WPRI-TV on Wednesday reported (https://bit.ly/1EVJrNo) that the Triple-A franchise of the Boston Red Sox attracted 466,600 spectators this season. The team drew 515,665 fans last year.

Attendance hadn’t been that low since 1993, prior to a major renovation at McCoy Stadium.

The PawSox’s season ended Monday after the team failed to make the playoffs. The team finished the year in last place in the International League North division.

The season draws to a close as negotiations between the team’s ownership group and state officials over a proposed ballpark in Providence appear to have reached an impasse.

State officials say the increasing costs associated with the project make the deal less likely.
