PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - The Pawtucket Red Sox and city and state officials are seeking proposals to study what it would take to upgrade McCoy Stadium.

The Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate plans to hold a joint press conference at the stadium Monday.

A team spokesman said in a statement the study would determine the “needs, upgrades, improvements and the associated costs” of the team’s current home.

The team’s ownership group, led by Larry Lucchino, announced in February 2015 that it was leaving Pawtucket. The team sought to build a new stadium on riverfront land near downtown Providence. That plan ended in September, after a proposal seeking $120 million from taxpayers was met by strenuous public opposition.

Lucchino announced in November that Pawtucket was on the table as a future home for the team.
