PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Pawtucket’s mayor says he’ll announce by the end of September how McCoy Stadium will be reused after the Pawtucket Red Sox leave town.

The Boston Red Sox Triple-A affiliate plans to leave Pawtucket and play its first season in Worcester, Massachusetts in 2021.

Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien spoke to WPRI-TV about the timing of the announcement Thursday, as Red Sox executives joined with state and local officials from Massachusetts to break ground on a 10,000-seat stadium for the ballclub in Worcester.

The team’s ownership decided to relocate after failing to reach a deal for a new stadium with Rhode Island officials.

Six groups have come forward with proposals for the McCoy Stadium property. Many include bringing another minor league sports franchise to the city, either baseball or soccer.
